The Ochsenkopf OX 235 E-0802 felling axe is a practical axe. The perfect axe to take with you in your backpack when you go camping, but also suited as a hand axe to make kindle or when working in the garden or woods. This axe is flexible in use and light-weight (only 1100 grams). The axe head is razor-sharp. The edge is even polished! This axe comes with a leather sheath to protect the cutting edge.

Maintenance Ochsenkopf axe
The right maintenance extends the life of your axe. For that reason you should always correctly store your tools. A storage place that is too dry will dry out the handle. However, a storage place that is too humid will make the handle swell which could, in time, damage the fibres of the wood. If you are planning to store your axe for a longer period of time it is wise to protect the cutting surface from rust. All you have to do is apply a little bit of oil or fat on the cutting surface. Afterwards protect the edge with, for instance, a sheath and you are good to go.

I used this axe once for splitting kindling. I chopped six sticks and the handle snapped off inside the head. I've sent an email with pictures complaining, and I've yet hear a reply. My advise.. don't buy the Ochsenkopf forestry axe (1100 grams) unless you just want to look at it. The wood used in the handles is not what it's claimed to be...
