High Carbon with Iron Oak Handle Higashi gata Masakari Axe 330mmAxe
The Masakari is a great axe for woodworkers, with its broad head and sharp, concave grind. With its “bearded” head shape, you can use the axe while holder right under the head. Fantastic for hewing logs, carving and sculpting, and even works as an all-around hatchet. It is made with a hard Japanese carbon steel called SK5, so it’s easy to sharpen while still having excellent edge retention. Best of both worlds, in my opinion. As with all wooden-hafted axes, take care to oil the haft of this axe regularly to ensure strength and a tight bond between head and haft.
