This Axe was made by commission for a friend who really loves to swing a large, heavy axe. Joe and Maksym worked up this design and the exact specifications over a period of a couple of weeks. They exchanged design drawings, measurements, considered different types of steel, the weather conditions under which the axe would be used, the types of trees and the condition of the wood that would be chopped. By the end of all the deliberations our friend was thinking it would be really great to start his own forge! Maksym's reply was “That's how I got started!” (Also sounds very like how our family got started making WeatherWool!)
