Hailing from here in Australia, the Tasmania pattern axe boasts a uniquely wide-forged blade, developed for use on the iron hardwoods often found in Australia.

This pattern head is often used for timber sport competitions and is great as a training axe. It will serve equally as a felling or splitting tool.
