Handmade in Germany
The Journeyman is a hybrid of a hatchet and a conventional axe, and is the perfect all-purpose “in between” companion for the avid backpacker, camper, or woodsman.  This pack axe is designed to be lightweight, compact, and easy to carry while trekking through wilderness.  Comfortable to use one or two handed, the Journeyman will make kindling, limb branches, build your shelter, and other light splitting or cutting work.  The poll (opposite the blade) may be used for light hammering, such as striking in tent stakes.  The head is buffed and polished to a highly reflective finish that reduces cutting friction and improves rust resistance.
