The axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697.
The steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe.
The head has a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings.
