6.7" Carbon Steel Head, Hickory Handle, Welted Leather Sheath
The Travelhawk Axe closes an equipment gap between hunters and bushcraft men. Innovative foundations of this novelty were provided by the Franconian Axe "Franziska" of the 6th to 8th century, the little Viking Beard Axe "Skeggöx" of the 8th to 9th century, the Inuit women's knife "Ulu" of the 19th century, and the relativized requirements of a solid tool. The advantages of the Travelhawk are that it quickly breaks up into 2 parts. This makes it easy to stow and transport. The blade can be used without a handle as a qualified knife for skinning or for the processing of game. The wooden shaft is embedded in the axe blade from above. Due to the upward flare and conical blade eyelet, the axe head counteracts the centrifugal force, so that its grip becomes firmer with each stroke. Includes a handcrafted welted leather sheath.
Condor Tool and Knife traces its proud history back to 1787, the year Gebr. Weyersberg Company was founded in Solingen Germany. The quality of the swords, military knives, agricultural tools and household cutlery that they manufactured made Solingen the cutlery capital of the world. Over the generations, the world´s largest manufacturer of swords and knives found it necessary to expand its operations to other countries to better serve its customers.
In 1963 the company built a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador and filled it with state of the art German equipment. Some of the original local employees who were sent back to Solingen for extensive training forty-two years ago are still working in the factory today turning out the finest quality machetes, shovels and other hand tools.
