Swedish Broad Axe
pattern of the Broad Axe and the handle is based on old Swedish
logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers of
all kinds. Has sufficient space between the "blades
beard" and the handle for the users fingers. Beveled
on two sides (double beveled) or on one side, left or right.
The eye (and the direction of the handle) may be straight or
sideways angled, right or left, to protect the knuckles. One
side beveled, left side, normally goes with an eye angled sideways
to the right. If you want deeper visible cuts when squaring logs,
you may even have a broad axe, double beveled, with the blade
bent and the eye angled sideways to the right or to the left.
broad axe has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle and
the head weighs 3 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.
