Named “Oberharzer” meaning wooded mountain legend, the Bison Oberharzer axe is balanced and beautifully crafted. Designed to be very manageable and safe, the Bison Oberharzer axe has a contoured shape that helps the axe cut through wood more easily. As standard this axe can perform a variety of tasks in the forest and garden, in addition it is also suitable for clearing branches overhead. The handle is made of solid and resilient hickory wood with excellent vibration absorption, ergonomically shaped for user comfort and finished with natural varnish. The cutting edge is sharply ground, whilst the hickory handle is triple wedged for maximum safety.
