A perfect sized hatchet for camping, cutting small firewood, and fine carving. The Almike is a lifelong all-purpose tool for the garden, camp or wilderness survival and features a classic turpentine pattern axe head intended for tasks such as making kindling, doing light clearing, and any number of backcountry jobs.
The axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697. As part of the hand grinding production process, the steel is struck multiple times to increase its density and render a more durable axe. The head is constructed with a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings, and the curved hickory handle is treated with linseed oil. Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath and can be worn on a belt or easily tucked into a backpack.
