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 Bakin axe is a great beginners mixed use axe, capable of clearing brush, splitting kindling or carving it is a great value for a hand made Japanese axe, we are very proud to offer these.

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.
