New In Box -- Firestone Belt Axe, custom made by the McGowan Manufacturing Company. This collectible axe is designed from the ancient Viking Beard Axe, with a dramatically curved blade that follows a compound curve from tip to tip. The handle is ergonomically designed for holding at the end for power chopping, or near the head for fine edge knife work. This Axe is ideal for skinning, slicing, chopping, puncturing, or whatever your cutting needs. The Belt Axe does the jobs of a good hunting knife, a hatchet, a camping axe, and a skinning tool. It is the Ultimate Hunting, Camping, Survival and Defense Tool. The BeltAxe is 11" overall with a 4.5" cutting edge.
The Belt Axe Head is investment cast from 440C stainless steel, which is heat treated and annealed in a method to create superior hardness. Investment casting is ideal for cutting tools of this nature, because the casting process creates an extensive network of carbide crystals throughout the blade -- especially at the edge -- making the cutting edge ultra strong and sharp. In fact the Belt Axe keeps an edge like a knife even through vigorous cutting, slicing, and chopping use. The head is then bead blasted and the cutting edge is hand polished to a mirror finish. The Belt Axe head is attached to the handle by two attachments not found on any other hatchet; a 3/8" hardened stainless steel set screw that is screwed into the back of the head, and a 1/4" spring steel roll pin which is inserted all the way through the head and handle.
The Belt Axe handle is also notable. It is crafted from cross-grain laminated Birch, from Finland, where the climate is very cold, and the Birch trees grow very slow and strong. The cross-grain laminating process increases the strength of the handle to the equivalent of a high quality pistol or gun stock. It is oil and water proof, and could be boiled in oil without coming apart.
A custom full grain leather sheath is included and made by DeSantis Holster & Leather specifically for this Axe. It is reinforced with double layers where strength is important, and holds the Belt Axe securely with a double snap system. This Belt Axe is a one of a kind, hand finished, collector's quality hand tool. Manufacturers Warranty included.
