The froe is an old-time tool used for splitting straight-grained wood. 12" hand forged iron blade fitted with a 18" hickory handle. In use, the thick, blunt blade is driven into your stock with wooden maul or heavy mallet, and the handle is pulled or pushed.
Forged from a special Swedish axe steel, the blades are tempered and annealed to the correct toughness. First quality hickory handles. Axeheads are oiled and proected by a grain-leather sheath. Each axe comes with a book that describes maintenance and use in detail, along with photos of the craftsman at work.
CAUTION: These are VERY sharp!
