Solar axe is a blend of sculptural forms and steel edge sharpness. It is real forging with no grinding which is done in order preserver the true beauty of forged surface and lines. Every axe we make is unique.
Why it is called Solar? Since we are looking for things that are universal and Sun is revered by all tribes.
It’s main purpose is wood hewing and that’s why it is popular among wood craftsmen and artists. It has wide neck, wide blade, and distinctive butt with two moustaches projecting up and down which provides very reliable handle fixation as a result of increased length in the plane of blade movement path.
The blade is made by split forge welding of the high carbon edge into the main mild steel body. This technique allows for a 100 % crack proof axe eye while having the cutting edge as hard as it should be. Also this eliminates the unwanted vibrations transmission from the axe head to the handle, suppressed by the soft main body of the axe.
The handle of the axe is self-wedged (handle bottom passed through the eye top and wedged by the thickening on top handle end). This ancient type of handle fixation is still preservedand preferred to all other types because of its dependability (the axe head never fells off the handle).
The axe blade can be decorated with chisel cut traditional ornaments and provided with custom handmade leather case.
The weight is usually around 500 g. Price for the axe is 210 EUR
