Adler Axes from Germany

NORTH RIVER OUTDOORS now carries Adler Axes from Germany! Since 1919, Adlers Axes make for an excellent tool for outdoor and wilderness use. Adler hatchets are used for axe throwing though-out the USA and endorsed by World Axe Throwing League.

Adler Axe company was founded in 1919 and the same passion for quality products lives with the company to this day. All axes are marked with JS or JSW. The JS stands for Joseph Schmitt, the original founder. The W stands for Wisental – the small German village where the axe company originated. The current factory is just to the north in Waghausel.

Now 4 generations strong, Adler Axes are run by Tobias Schmitt. Mr. Schmitt has worked in the company since he was a boy and has known many of the employees most of his life. This rich tradition allows Adler to create quality axes from German C45 steel and American Hickory handles.
