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 tool steel treated to offer both toughness and good edge formation.
The Mizuno Satsuma axe has an all steel head and Kanto oak handle, lightweight and great for smaller jobs, clearing brush, splitting kindling etc.
It is important to note these are 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.
