The 434 American Felling Axe is a professional axe for those who want to work in the forest in the traditional way. It is ideal for felling very large trees, thanks to its long, broad edge of 11.5 cm (4.53 Inches). The axe is forged to a curved bit, making it suitable for cutting into fresh, resinous wood such as spruce or pine. The heavy head and long handle also give considerable power to the cut. Overall length with handle is 35.5 inches. Weighs 4.8 lbs. Includes vegetable-tanned leather sheath.
