The utility offered by this axe is simply astounding! I was able to use it for hammering with good precision, along with hacking smaller pieces of wood down for kindling to make a fire. Although the blade is more designed for war-like purposes, it can still be an effect wood cutter and it’s size is very portable (well within an arm’s length for anyone). The leather gripping is simple, effective and can always be readjusted and done differently if not to your liking without ruining the weapon or needing to scrap the materials you removed. Everything has this simplistic beauty and a utilitarian beauty that I’ve found unmatched in a blacksmith. More importantly, any questions you have they’re always willing to help and answer questions. You’ll never go wrong with Olde Town!

I love it and am extremely satisfied with the craftsmanship. It's a work of art as much as a useful tool. Just the right size, weight and balance. I will be proudly displaying it on my wall as it should be. I will be purchasing more, slowly building my collection of Roy's masterpieces. Roy is truly a master bladesmith. Thank you very much.

So so beautiful!! Second time ordering from this shop, and plan on ordering more! It’s a gift for the boyfriend and he’s going to love it.

Amazing craftsmanship! If you’re thinking or purchasing from Olde Town Smithy, stop thinking and just do it. You won’t regret it!
