Almost every tomahawk in the market today can trace its roots back to the Hudson Bay Axe used for centuries in the vast forests and swamps of North East Canada. Well known for its versatility and effectiveness, the Hudson Bay Axe became indispensable for anyone trying to wrest a living out of the wilderness. Drop forged out of 1050 Carbon Steel, it offers a 3.5” long cutting edge in the classic shape as well as a substantial “poll” that can be used for pounding, crushing, and hammering. You also can drive nails and spikes with it as it too, like the blade, is differentially hardened. Built with a tough, straight grain American Hickory handle, it’s ready for any tasks in the woods and in a pinch will also double as a frighteningly effective weapon.
