About Les’s axe. When the first white Americans traveled west to explore the new world, they brought a versatile and handy axe on their expedition. It soon spread to the native Americans, and became a part of their nomad life. A light axe is useful in all the challenges a bushman can face. This is a reliable and useful axe with many purposes. The wedge shape of the head gives it good splitting power. It is also good for felling or carving due to the long and quite broad blade. The neck is a distinct hammer and good for driving pegs. A notch for your fingers makes it easy to be very detailed and get nice cuts when doing precision work. The handle has ample length to get a good swing and striking power. It is enough to be a two hand axe for wood splitting and felling. When splitting and using the axe as a hammer, it is an advantage that the handle is quite straight. So this is an axe and a hammer. It works very well as both and is no compromise, because we don’t like compromises. Axe head: 6,5 hg -Handle length: 20 inch -Blade length: 6,5 inch -Blade width: 3,5 inch Wetterlings and Survivorman Les Stroud have been working on an exiting project this spring - we have made an axe together! It is a winning combination indeed and we are both very happy about how the axe has come out. This is Les's thoughts about the project: "The legendary reputation of Swedish axes has never been lost on me. I have used them through all of my adventures and travels in the wilderness. So when Wetterlings approached me to design a beautiful, handmade wooden axe with them, I jumped at the chance. It's an opportunity to create my own legacy by joining an already existing great legacy. It has been easy fit to design an ax as per my own desires of craftsmanship, aesthetics and functionality with such a legendary, high quality company as Wetterlings. ” Les Stroud Wetterlings are excited about the cooperation and very impressed about Les's wildlife experience and skills. Anyone who have watched his show on Discovery Channel have seen how well he faces and manages all the challenges a bushman can experience. His knowledge has made the axe a unique really taken it to the next level. He is also a genuine and true personality that we feel close to. To partner with him to design this axe has been great.
