The Adler Yankee Hatchet is an impressive blade for at an exceptional price. The ergonomic handle is hewn from US hickory and painted with a unique anti-slip paint pattern for better grip. Each hatchet comes with a heavy-duty leather sheath and a cotton storage bag. The Yankee is unrivaled at this price point.
Adler was founded in 1919 by Josef Schmitt. Every Adler Axe now bears the “JSW” mark—the “JS” to honor Josef Schmitt and the “W” to signify its time-honored origins in the small village of Wiesental (located just south of the current factory in Waghäusel). In other words, this isn't your standard-fare hardware store axe. This blade has character, history, and craft.
One more reason to swing an Adler: The Adler paint factory is water-based and wood waste is used to generate the energy (up to 700KW) that runs their factory. Pretty Cool.
