Here she is! The only Maine wedge pattern camp axe being made today. Forged in our shop in South Portland from 1050 carbon steel, this 2.5 lb. axe is hung on a 28" Amish turned hickory handle and comes with a custom Maine-made leather sheath.
Adding to the historical accuracy of the axe pattern, we emboss the year of manufacture and maker's initials on the head --- just like Oakland, Maine's Emerson & Stevens did in the early 1900's. And in honor of Maine's bicentennial in 2020 we are stamping a "Dirigo" star on the axe head!
The axe comes wicked sharp and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 56-58 so she'll keep an edge after hours of use.

Don't worry! We'll ship a gift box at no charge in December with a free hand-forged axe-shaped bottle opener ($15 value), koozie, B&C sticker and postcard to unwrap for the holidays. The axe will be shipped later.
