Pulaski Axe

The Ideal Chopping Axe

Splitting wood in the fresh mountain air has never been so satisfying. Swing the weighted head with ease as its wide-angle, 1055 high carbon steel split blade keeps its edge time after time. The 1/3” solid steel core through the wood handle secures the head with a tightening hex bolt and connects it to the steel pommel end to help you maneuver easily around rooting and trenching.

Q: How do I properly clean and maintain my Pulaski Axe?
A:
Apply a thin coat of protective oil after each use. Wipe clean of dirt,  water, and fingerprints regularly. Tighten or re-handle axe head as needed with the removable hex nut.

Q: How do I sharpen the blade?
A: Use a medium to fine file to straighten out any larger dings or nicks in the blade. The edge can be honed with a medium sharpening disk or stone.

Q: Why 900D Polyester?
A: 900D polyester is water-resistant, resistant to bacteria, and very durable which makes it ideal for extended use in the outdoors.

Q: How do I care for this?
A: You should never dry clean or machine wash your sheath, but it can be carefully cleaned if you so choose. Brush off the loose dirt, rinse the surface with plain water, gently scrub with a brush, then let air dry. If your stains persist, use a mild bar soap.

Pulaski axe

Looks great on my wall when it not in use in the field. Happy that I purchased.

Outstanding piece of gear!

This axe, and I’m calling it that because even though it is small in size I easily and quickly cut through a 3-4” tree hat had fallen. And proceeded to delimb branches after that. I recently had hand surgery, and was able to do all of this one handed.

Well crafted and arrives very sharp. If weight is a concern, it may not be what your looking for. For my application it has proven ideal.

Awesome quality, sadly too short for its purpose

I wish I had read more carefully the length of the handle before I spent the money. It’s beautifully crafted and should last for years to come, but I work in the forest daily and the handle is way too short to be comfortable for more than occasional use. I’m a 5’6” female, so I imagine this would be the case for many people. It’s great for a tool to have for camping or emergency use, but for me. this is not a serious tool for everyday use due to its shorter handle length. I don’t consider this to be useful as a true Pulaski, more of a fancy axe. You would be hobbled over trying to dig fire lines or clear trail with this thing for any length of time.
