Hand-forged felling axe for universal use. The popular Harzer head shape, widely used since 1930, was found to be one of the best head shapes in early forestry tests and was common throughout Germany before the power saw was invented. Our model also features the characteristic rectangular groove, which allows you to pull out your wedged axe using a square metal bar. The handle shape we use was developed in 1935 through intensive practical testing by the former IFFA »Institute for forestal work science«. Thanks to the bent handle, and the resulting change of the axe’s »slope«, the impact carries enormous power.
