Todd has applied his skills in full integral construction of knives to create this astounding full integral axe. The steel is 440C with a heat colored Texture Tech titanium overlay by Tom Ferry. The axe blade measures 2 1/4 inches. The head of the axe has a slight curvature and runs 5 inches from the top edge of the blade to the top edge of the checkered hammer. From the top center of the head to the end of the handle is 8 1/2 inches. Maximum head thickness is 3/8 inches. In addition to the Texture Tech, the handle features Todd's trademark fluted center. Impressive all the way.
