The Boy’s axe is made with a Dayton style head, which is perfect for small scale chopping & felling duties. The design originates from the Dayton, Ohio area & was made to perfectly fit boy’s & girl’s who wanted to help with the family firewood chores. This axe comes with a curved 24” American Hickory handle, which is short enough to carry easily in the woods, but long enough to give you decent swinging power. The axe head is drop forged & tempered to Rc 48-55
