Helko Traditional Collection - Black Forest Spaltaxt Axe - a perfect splitting tool

£79.95
The traditional collection from Helko is simply brilliant & represents Helko's elite series of axes. From years of experience Helko have made a fantastic range at brilliant value and I am amazed they can make such a quality product for the price. The handles on this range of axes are all Swiss made and are brilliantly comfortable and help Helko's axes represent a perfect companion when in the forest.  

They chop extremely well and hold an edge for a prolonged period of time due to Helko's forging and hardening process. They are easily comparable to the well known brands on the market today and surpass them in some ares.

The Black Forest Spaltaxt is a German-style splitting axe with a dual-wedge head design that delivers highly effective strikes for increased splitting efficiency
. I used to think another makes Splitting Maul was the best on the market but I am afraid it has just been surpassed. The Spaltaxt design is quite unique but delivers additional splitting power with the wedge shape design on the sides. This means you need to put less effort in allowing the tool to truly do the work.This is the equivalent size of a Splitting Maul in other ranges. 

This axe comes with a choice of Helko's standard or premium top grain American cowhide 6-7oz leather adjustable sheath. These are made in the USA by artisan leatherworkers from untreated, vegetable tanned full grain leather. The design allows it to be fully ambidextrous, unlike others, and means you can dye it, stain it or polish it to your own tastes.
