On a lovely spring day in 1882 a man known as Otto Wetterling (an engineer) stepped off a train in Storvik, Sweden. He had been learning about axe making in the USA and returned to help his brother Sven Axel Wetterling who had started his own axe forging company known as S.A. Wetterlings Manufaktur. Otto was appointed as his supervisor and between them they combined all their ideas gained from both sides of the world to create some of the finest axes you will ever place your hands on. These days the company still operates at the same forge that they have used without interruption for more than 125 years. Combine rustic Hickory wood and quality Swedish steel and you get an axe that will stand the test of time.

Wetterlings Carpenters Axe SAW31 Wetterlings Carpenters Axe. 19 5/8 overall. 6 3/4" axe head with 4" cutting edge. American hickory handle with lanyard hole. Leather blade cover. Weighs 2.2 pounds. Hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. Hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The special axe steel alloy makes high quality hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterling axes keep a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. These are the main reasons the Wetterling axes hold a keen edge with good "sting" longer than most axes. The handles are lathed from American hickory. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows make hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles."
