Big outdoor knives and machetes are good for bushcrafting tasks, but sometimes you just need an axe to get the job done. Axes can be costly, and many bushcrafters just can’t pay $300 for a tool to maintain their camp. Marble’s fills the gap between quality and value with their Marble’s American Hickory Axe series.

The axe heads are made from hand-forged 1045 high carbon stainless steel. They are designed to hold up to the elements and keep a good edge while still being relatively easy to sharpen. There are a few different head styles to choose from so there is an axe to fit your needs.

The handles are American Hickory and left in a natural finish. I’ve been looking at these axes, and I can see the grain patterns look nice, you can easily tell there is quality craftsmanship at hand here. The base of the handle features a lanyard hole for security while using these in the bush.
