Hand-Forged Froe with dark burned handle.

Froe is a tool for cleaving wood by splitting it along the grain. Used by hammering one edge of its blade into the end of a piece of wood in the direction of the grain, then twisting the blade in the wood by rotating the haft. 

Froes are used in combination with wooden mallets to split timber, to make planks, wooden shingles, or kindling. They are safer and more accurate to use than hatchets or splitting mauls because the blade is not swung.

Forged from 52100 steel. HRC 56-57.
Handle made from ash tree, burned and treated with bitumen and lineseed oil.

Leather case included
