The "Blood Moon" is truly a mean axe. The damascus was finished with a vintage etch and finish. This axe features our signature rippled damascus pattern. The solid hickory handle has our blood moon stain that is a perfect fit for Halloween. All of our damascus steel is forged in house, here in Idaho, and is forged from 1080 and 15N20. This axe features around 185 layers. The damascus head features our chipped texture which makes each axe head completely unique. The leather blade cover is made from 8oz, black english bridle leather that comes from Wickett & Craig USA. The sheath features a black snap for a secure closer. The unique upsweep of this axe gives it a very unique and medieval feel.

*Just like all things, proper care should be given to the knife blade. We recommend cleaning with warm water and completely drying after use. We recommend applying WD40 to the blade immediately after drying to help deter spotting/rusting. We strongly encourage applying WD40 or a similar type oil to the axe frequently to help preserve the damascus as well as to help resist any rusting.
*The hickory handle is tapered to allow a nice fit at the top of the handle.
