Blackout Forester TR Axe
The Blackout Forester TR Axe takes the super tough, blackened Forester TR head to a new level. The matte black finished American hickory handle engraved with our logo pairs perfectly with the blackened, FNC treated head. The black leather sheath completes the black out look of this American made hatchet.
TOUGHER • MORE DURABLE
The FNC (Ferritic Nitrocarburizing) process uses heat, nitrogen and carbon to toughen up the surface of our 4140 steel, improving its durability, appearance and corrosion resistance.
The Forester TR Axe: a midsize 3 lb., 4140 alloy steel head with a double bit axe/splitter combo, on a 23" or 27" American hickory handle.
The Forester TR Axe is a double bit axe/splitting wedge combo. Rather than two virtually identical blades opposing each other that have the same function, we've added a 4" long, 30 degree wedge designed specifically for splitting logs with ease. At 3lbs., the Forester is an axe you can swing all day, easily pack and transport. Made with 4140 alloy steel and through-hardened for both toughness and superior edge retention. This newest member of the Hardcore family comes with our lifetime guarantee against defects and is available with your choice of a 23" or 27" American hickory handle. Proudly made in the USA!
The Forester is named in honor of Theodore Roosevelt's Chief Forester, Gifford Pinchot and his impact on American forestry. Pinchot was the head of the Division of Forestry and was named Chief Forester of the new US Forest Service under President Roosevelt. During Pinchot's time in government service and as Chief Forester, the number of national forests grew from 32 to 149, totaling more than 193 million acres.
