The Travelhawk Axe closes an equipment gap between hunters and bushcraft men. Innovative foundations of this novelty were provided by the Franconian Axe "Franziska" of the 6th to 8th century, the little Viking Beard Axe "Skeggöx" of the 8th to 9th century, the Inuit women's knife "Ulu" of the 19th century, and the relativized requirements of a solid tool. The advantages of the Travelhawk are that it quickly breaks up into 2 parts. This makes it easy to stow and transport. The blade can be used without a handle as a qualified knife for skinning or for the processing of game. The wooden shaft is embedded in the axe blade from above. Due to the upward flare and conical blade eyelet, the axe head counteracts the centrifugal force, so that its grip becomes firmer with each stroke. Includes a handcrafted welted leather sheath.
Designed by Tony Lennartz
Tony Lennartz has been an icon in outdoor, survival and bushcraft for decades. His wide range of experience is based on his years of professional activity as a soldier and policeman, as well as on his lifelong passion for life in the wilderness. During many long stays in Canada a close connection with the culture of the Native Canadians developed, whose techniques and methods he could learn there. The training courses of Tony Lennartz, which take place on a large area in the Eifel, have taught thousands of participants the foundations of survival in the wild for many years. Like no other, Tony Lennartz bundles the wilderness experience from decades and develops his strategies and techniques permanently. Thus his knife and axe designs are the essence of his knowledge and a clear commitment to his philosophy of uncompromising functionality.
