Unfortunately Wetterlings Wildlife Axe is no longer carried by OpticsPlanet.
You can also explore other items in the Camping Gear, Axes & Saws categories yourself to try and find the perfect replacement for you!
The Wetterlings Wildlife Axe has an overall length of 12 1/2 inches with a 5 1/4 inch axe head and 2 3/4 inch cutting edge. The Wetterlings Axe w/Leather Blade Cover is hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese, and vanadium. Hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The axe steel alloy makes high quality hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterligns Wildlife Axe keeps a Rockwell hardness of 57-58.
