Forester's Friend

What is the Forester's Friend you ask? It is a limited edition, handmade Maine wedge pattern double bit cruiser. You'll find all the features found in double bit cruisers made in the early 1900's by iconic Maine makers such as Emerson & Stevens, King Axe & Tool, and Spiller.

The iconic Maine wedge double bit pattern is distinguished by a distinct peak in the center of the axe and a unique diamond shaped eye.

The Forester's Friend weighs in at around 2.5 lbs. and is hung on a straight grained, hand-picked, Grade A 28" Amish-turned hickory handle.

Adding to the vintage feel of the Forester's Friend is the brass pin at the 2' mark on handle. These pins were used to measure 

(by flipping the axe handle end over end) 4' cords of wood (4' x 4' x 8') and measure logs while at work in the woods.

Protecting your axe is a heavy duty handmade leather sheath that the axe easily slips into. Made by our friends at Holler Leatherworks in Minot, ME.

Due to the time-consuming nature of making this axe, the first edition of the Forester's Friend will be limited to 148 axes. (148 years ago West Waterville, ME was renamed Oakland and was on its way to becoming the axe making capital of the U.S.) A star will be stamped on the head of each axe to identify them as a first edition Forester's Friend Maine Wedge Double Bit Cruiser.

At this time the wait time for receiving your Forester's Friend is approximately 12 months. But it's worth it to own what is sure to be a collectors item only gaining in value and significance over the decades!
