These axes draw on the toolmaking lineage of heavily forested Niigata, hand made in Sanjo Niigata at the Mizuno Seisakujo works under the supervision of dentoukougeishi blacksmith Isao Mizuno. These are forged from tool steel core treated to offer both toughness and good edge formation.
The middle weight Jigata axe's unique head shape allows you to grip directly behind the cutting edge for ultimate control while carving.
It is important to note these not meant to be used against stones or with excessive force, while not excessively hardened, their edges are harder than many western axes and will not tolerate misuse.
