Description

Here she is!  The only Maine wedge pattern camp axe being made today.  Forged in Brant & Cochran's shop in South Portland from 1050 carbon steel, this 2.5 lb. axe is hung on a 28" Amish turned hickory handle and comes with a custom Maine-made leather sheath.

Adding to the historical accuracy of the axe pattern, the year of manufacture and maker's initials are embossed on the head --- just like Oakland, Maine's Emerson & Stevens did in the early 1900's.  

The axe comes wicked sharp and tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 56-58 so she'll keep an edge after hours of use.

The Allagash Cruiser is a Maine wedge pattern camp axe. The Maine wedge pattern is characterized by a thick, heavy poll and its simple wedge shape. The pattern for the Allagash Cruiser is based on a Maine wedge axe from the collection of the Patten (ME) Lumberman’s Museum.
