FORGED STEEL BLADE 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 HANDLE 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.
