About Wetterlings Axes
All Wetterlings Axes are hand-forged from a carefully engineered alloy steel and have an edge hardness of about 57 RwC. The handle is turned from American Hickory heartwood and a hand-crafted leather sheath is included. Swedish hand-forged axes, such as Wetterlings, have been respected and depended upon by woodcutters for many years. Wetterlings has been forging axes since the 1880s and still uses many of the same labor-intensive methods to ensure that the finished product is balanced, strong, and reliable. Each Wetterlings Axe is crafted by hand and as such has its own unique character--no two are the same.
