Reinforced Steel Pick Axe Mattock (Shock Absorbing Fibreglass Handle)


    The reinforced forged steel blade is an alloy of carbon and iron that is compressed under extreme pressure to make a very hard and strong substance - hardened and tempered for durability. The bonus of forged steel is that the metal becomes stronger than equivalent types that are cast or machined.
    Fibreglass handles are tougher and can take more punishment than traditional wooden handles. They have great shock absorption properties and are very durable. One big advantage that fibreglass handles have over wooden handles is that they are not nearly as sensitive to the environment. A fibreglass handled axe can fall into muck, spend the night in the back of a pickup truck in freezing conditions, be covered in oil and still look as good as new.
    The fibreglass handle is designed so it can harnesses the downward force of a swing to both split and break off chunks of wood from a larger log.
    A wide range of tasks that fall under the remit of landscaping can be undertaken with the use of a pick axe. Normal soil that has become dry and hardened can normally be broken up with a shovel. However, this will be more difficult when it comes to hard clay and hard rocky-type soils. Using the sharp end of the axe will enable you to break up the materials so that it can be removed as necessary
