The blade of the OX-1002, which is scientifically designed to be extraordinarily thin and almost parallel, reduces the weight but doubles the performance. Special analysis axe steel, hardened from blade edge to the axe eye by newly developed treatment, guarantees maximum durability and excellent cutting effect. Science has proven that the blade of an axe is distorted with each stroke. The blade of this axe, however, is more flexible, reducing the danger of breaking considerably, compared to the so-called rigid axes. Easier renewal of the edge due to the favorable cross-cut, based on the almost parallel blade. Sharpening before chopping is not necessary, because this axe is shipped ready for use.
