It is with great pleasure I get to tease an axe I got to design for my friend Maksym @wildfieldsforge.

We finished the first prototype 2 days before the first bombs dropped in Ukraine.

After more than 2 months of protecting his family and elder neighbours, Maksym, whom I got to meet in Ukraine last fall, rebuilt his bombed forge and went back to work under daily shelling.

-

My goal for this axe was to apply my tried and tested proportions and formula for dedicated carving axe.design to a historic pattern.

Influenced by the norse/slavic tradition of Ukraine and my own Austrian/Hungarian background.

-

Masterly executed by Maksym, with his unparalleled knowledge of forging axes to hammer finish, heat treat and grinding, this ball bearing axe is a fierce and optimized carving companion.

Head weight 600g.

Adding a 32cm haft I designed for the blade radius, a heavy poll for counter balance and a double stitched leather mask this axe is a timeless lifetime tool.

-

The axes will drop, ready to be shipped on my website.

No reservations, no pre-orders.

Shipped from Ukraine which works despite the current situation very well.

Import fees may apply in your country.

Sold without VAT included!
