CRKT Skeggox Axe

Published By

If the ancient Norsemen had access to modern smithing methods and materials, they probably would want to make something just like the CRKT Skeggox Axe.

Designed by James Williams from Vass, North Carolina, the Skeggox Axe is named after its Norse forebear—a crude but effective implement for splitting wood (and quite possibly heads, as well). 

In this reinvention of the classic style, however, Williams goes for an extremely high performance SK-5 carbon steel, which offers an incredible combination of durability and edge retention. 

Pair that with a full tang construction for unparalleled strength and longevity, and then cap the whole thing off with a lightweight and ergonomic reinforced nylon handle, and you get yourself an axe that’s perfect for everything from chores in the backyard to weeks-long hiking adventures out on the trails.
