Overview

What once was a tired, rusted and forgotten axe of yesteryear is reborn under heavy hand, as a balanced and formidable tool. Designed to be wielded in the toughest conditions, with the weight of a full sized single bit axe and the nimble dexterity of a hunters knife.

With an overall length of 18.5 inches and hand shaped half octagonal American Curly Maple helve, the Revenant is a compact and sturdy tool with the outdoorsman in mind. Capable of felling small trees, carving timbers for shelter, or field dressing the days hunt. The Revenant was built to handle anything the demanding outdoorsman can throw at it. After shaping, the steel is heat treated under coal fire with toughness and durability in mind, the narrow edge geometry lends well to fine carving work, or a gentle shave around the campfire. The half octagonal hold provides the user an indexed grip for heavy blows or gentle cuts.

Born to work the Revenant is not simply a vintage axe but rather a tool to stand the test of time.
