Compact Stainless Steel Camping & Bush Axe/Hatchet

Click on a thumbnail image and it will enlarge.  Please be patient the photos are large and may take a while to open.

Unbranded but exactly the same as the branded axes I used to stock except for the sheath.

Featuring all 440 (surgical grade) high carbon stainless steel construction with nylon sheath and non slip grip. A very high quality axe, well balanced, compact and just the right weight.

Blade: 4 inch cutting edge. 440 high carbon stainless steel gives an incredible cutting edge and strength.

Overall length: 11 inches handle plus head.

Weight: 20 ozs (567 grams)

Sheath: Quality platicsheath with belt loop and retaining strap.

Handle: All steel with rubber overlaid grip.

Condition: Brand new.

What makes this axe superb is the steel used. Many axes are made with inferior grades of steel. “Stainless” is a large group of steel alloys – many entirely unsuitable for blade use.

Grade 440 is capable of attaining the best hardness, sharpness and wear resistance of all the stainless alloys. Its very high carbon content is responsible for these characteristics along with superior heat treatment. Of course this is also more expensive – you get what you pay for.

A great design, beautifully made and finished. This blade is tough, versatile and very usable.

This axe is a perfect combination of size and weight. Medium heavy and razor sharp.

I’m taking one of these next time we venture into the bush or go camping.
