Karesuando Hunters Axe, Vuogas Aksu, 4042, RRP. £182.50
Absolutely thrilled with the quality of this axe, well presented, well made, well balanced, perfect!
It was a gift for my partner and he loves it. It does exactly what he wanted and it's a joy to use, his face tells me so.
I have always been of the opinion that in a survival situation a small Scandinavian bearded hatchet was vastly superior to a machete. Discussions became so heated that I thought that there would be only one way to prove my point. I won, but more to the point this is a fantastic product with great ergonomics. Beautiful to hold and to handle, excellent to use not matter where you place your hand. This and a hook knife are all you would require to make the difference between surviving and living comfortably. Beautifully manufactured product of great practicality and superb looks.
Excellent axe, not only does it look amazing, build, handle, blade, it is a multitude axe, chops, skins, I have even used it for accurate cutting when carving large areas of logs that smaller knives would take too long, it fits in the at the axe end for most accurate work, as the head design has a cut out near the handle that your hand naturally sits in, brilliant, did I mention M3k is a pleasure to deal with, via phone or email
This is not only a beautiful thing to look at but is functional. It has a nice weight and great balance. It is going to be something I use for many years to come.
