Introducing the Allagash Cruiser: the only Maine wedge pattern camp axe being forged today. Each Allagash Cruiser is meticulously hand-crafted in our South Portland shop one at a time, made with U.S. steel, hung on an A+ quality hickory handle of our own design, and true to the Maine roots of this historic axe design.
Each Allagash Cruiser comes with a custom Maine-made leather sheath to keep you safe from its wicked sharp bit. And now you can get your name or initials laser engraved on your Allagash Cruiser making it that much more of a family heirloom to pass down for generations! Or add a leather collar around the shoulder of the axe handle to protect your axe from overstrikes and prolong the life of the handle.

Forged from premium carbon tool steel, the Allagash Cruiser is a 2.5-lb. powerhouse that effortlessly combines strength, durability, and precision. The bit is tempered to Rockwell hardness 56-58 and carefully honed to have a “wicked sharp” edge. Weight, strength and balance makes the Allagash Cruiser stand up to hard work.
The Allagash Cruiser proudly features a 28" A+ grade Amish-turned hickory handle, meticulously chosen for its exceptional quality, flexibility, and grain structure. This superior handle coupled with the balanced hang of the handle to axe head makes the Allagash Cruiser a joy to swing!
