Classic Line“-Axes with mirror polished blades, lacquered Hickory-Handle with leather-loop and
leather edge protector.
The Expedition is as big as they come, and is the workhorse of the Classic line. This serious working axe is best reserved for the heaviest and most difficult jobs. The size may be intimidating to newcomers, but the Expedition is ergonomically balanced, and fully capable of clearing your property and heating your home (provided you have the stamina to put it to use). Its heavy 4.5 pound head delivers incredible striking power in the hands of a controlled operator. Beyond the call for duty, the Expedition’s polished head and impressive size make it an exquisite display piece in its own right. In fact, you may just want to order two – one for the shed, and one for the mantle. The head is buffed and polished to a highly reflective finish that reduces cutting friction and improves rust resistance.
