    Go on, tempt me. How much, how big, how heavy, how sharp? Etc.

    Roughly the same as a bottle of your very nice Albanian peated Limeburners single malt...
    But it will last a lot longer, and unless you are very clumsy won't do as much damage to your liver.

    New premium Saddle Axe with a drop forged blade made from 5160 steel, known for its superior characteristics/blade retention, and has been heat treated, tempered & crafted with a distinctive flat grind on each blade for maximum versatility
    The innovative yet traditional American pattern sports phantom bevels that greatly reduce surface friction & bite deeper than many convex bladed axes & the bevels also serve for easy removal of the axe bit after a deep cut into the wood
    The Saddle Axe design has the extremely sharp 25 degree flat grind on the left blade for cutting, shaving, and carving & a more robust 32 degree flat grind on the right blade for notching, splitting & heavier jobs
    Includes a fine leather double bit blade cover
    Head weight 0.9kg with select 41cm American Hickory handle
    Made in USA
    $230

    About the same price as a bottle of Limeburners Snakebite, too. Slightly heavier but both cut jn either direction. Tough choice. Might have to organise some swapsies.....lol
