Product Description

Two-handed camp axe. Used for light splitting, chopping, driving tent pegs, etc. The pattern is thought to have originated from “Biscayan” in Northern Spain, near France.

The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Head coated with black enamel and the cutting edge in clear lacquer to deter rust.

  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured in a traditional manner with a wooden wedge and a round steel wedge.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″-1″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly making to overall length of the tool around 26″
