Most have forgotten that during the peak of 20th Century American forestry, the double bit axe was the tool of choice for the professional axeman. Well-balanced and versatile, each bit can be shaped for a different task; one aggressive for
deep cutting, one strong for hard or knotted wood. Essentially two axes
in one, they are very easy to maintain in the field. Just put one bit in a stump and file the other. We are thrilled to bring back a classic 2.5lb weight cruiser that offers all the benefits of the traditional double bit, but in a more manageable size for camping, backpacking, bushcrafting, trail clearing and more. And yes. It makes a wicked thrower!
LAMACA Axes are serial numbered and assigned in order of purchase. As a handmade item, appearance in color, hue, and finish will vary from piece to piece. Each axe is an individual work and can differ in appearance, but all our axes are crafted with pride and backed by a Lifetime Warranty on manufacturing defects.
