American-Made Felling Axe
This felling axe utilizes a Dayton pattern head, which was originally derived from Dayton, Ohio, in the early 1900s and is now one of the most recognizable and popular axe heads for its ability to swiftly cleave through wood.
Made by fourth-generation axe makers, the blade of this felling axe is heat treated and quenched to produce a hardened edge that extends 1 ½ inches for maximum retention of sharpness. The hickory wood handle is selectively chosen for its grain pattern and density. The handle is mounted to the axe head in a traditional manner, using a softwood wedge crossed with a steel wedge to create a tight, secure fit in the joining.
