The Big Sparth ax comes with a shaft of ash-tree and can be made with just ground or hand-forged finish of the axe head. The ax head is secured with a wedge and a metal pin on the shaft.
The wooden haft can be strengthened after your choice with two steel strips. A similar haft has this double-edged ax.
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
