Helko Axes & Hachets from the "Classic Line" series in various sizes

Hand crafted in Germany & Switzerland, these wood cutters are tough enough for any task but beautiful enough for display

The "Classic Line" of axes by Helko combines function with beauty and are hand made with care. The polished axe heads are made of drop-forged, heat-treated and oil hardened high grade carbon steel. At the same time the solid, high-quality, wooden handles are sustainable sourced and finished with linseed oil to bring out the natural lustre of the wood grain. To ensure safety during transport, the sharp blades are covered with a leather sheath.

This line contains hatchet, axes and a maul ranging from 500 g - 3000 g. They are suited for a wide range of wood chopping tasks from making kindling to felling down trees. Also, the Classic Line is for beginners and experts alike, for heavy duty use as well as a display piece.
