In addition to the axe accompanied by a bag made of nylon. You can attach it to your belt. Axe handle wrapped with nylon string.
Manufactured using 420 or 440 stainless steel with a hardness of 58 - 60 on a HRC scale and their blades have a very high degree of corrosion resistance. Smart profiles of the blade and applied design solutions provide each user with full satisfaction in terms of functionality, portability and efficiency in action.
Stainless steels from 420 family contain less than 0.5% carbon. Their advantages are high toughness (resistance to dynamic pressure) and corrosion resistance, almost unique among the stainless steel used in manufacture of knives .
The hardness of HRC: 52 - 56
Steel Composition 420:
* carbon (0.15 - 0.35%) * Chrome (0.12 - 0.14%) * manganese (0.1%) * remainder being iron.
Stainless steels from 420 family (with better performance characteristics than 420 steel) are among the most popular so-called. "civil" steel.
They are characterized by high corrosion resistance, ease of sharpening, and also because of their properties, they do not require frequent sharpening.
The percentage of carbon are within the limits: 0,65-0,75%.
The hardness of HRC: 57-60.
