Hailing from Australia, the Tasmania pattern axe boasts a uniquely wide-forged blade, developed for use on the iron hard woods often found in Austrialia. This pattern head is often used for timbersport competitions and is great as a training axe. It will serve equally as a felling or splitting tool. There are very few makers that produce the Tasmania pattern head now. Comes with our standard top grade American cow hide 6oz leather adjustable sheath.
