Tool making has long been one of the core traditions of blacksmithing. Over the past several years, the blacksmiths at Heritage Forge have developed a line of heirloom hand-forged axes, woodworking tools and gardening tools that are as attractive as they are effective. 4-6 week lead time on all tools.
All of our axes are forged in the traditional manner, starting with low carbon steel for the body and forge-welding in a wedge of high carbon steel for the edge. This process creates a blade with a hard cutting surface that holds a sharp edge well, while leaving the body of the tool softer to allow for better shock absorption.
