Hand-forged carpenter's axe with curved head, wide beard and narrow throat for joining work and hewing and trimming trunks and beams. The red painted indentation on the blade, which is characteristic of this axe type, has a religious significance in Japan. The irregular recess represents the fallibility of all man-made creation and is an apology for intervention in perfect and divine nature. The triple-layered forged blade with a core of White Paper Steel is bevelled on both sides. The handle is made of untreated Japanese white oak. Comes with premium leather sheath.
Japanese Axes
With their laminated forged blades*, Japanese axes are the epitome of the fine art of blacksmithing. The durability and sharpness of the steel along with the well-proportioned axe heads and handles are unmatched! Features of a Japanese axe:
  • Forged double-layered blades - very hard cutting edges of 58-60 HRC steel and impact-absorbing soft iron body*
  • Handles of untreated Japanese white oak
  • Handle is set by means of a wooden wedge and an additional metal wedge
  • Each axe comes with a handy sheath
