This is the Double Bit Cruiser Axe by Base Camp X, it’s exactly the sort of thing I’d like to have hanging over the fireplace in my log cabin in Montana. Once I get around to owning a log cabin in Montana.
The head of the axe weighs in at 3.5 lbs and the handle is made from a single piece of 36″ Tennessee Hickory wood. That high-carbon axe head will hold an edge far better than your average monkey-metal Home Depot wood-chopper and it’ll double as a hell of a home defence tool.
