Cold Steel is pleased to announce a modern interpretation of the iconic Hudson Bay axe. The Cold Steel Hudson Bay Camp Axe follows the centuries-old style with subtle and significant design updates to improve performance and functionality.
The hallmark feature of theCold Steel Hudson Bay Camp Axeis the locking mechanism that secures the axe to the handle without driven wedges. Instead, the poll is split to allow a broken handle to be easily removed and a new handle installed. This clamping system is exceptionally strong, ensuring the axe not only stays firmly attached to the handle during hard use, but can be repaired in the field if necessary.
The Hudson Bay Camp Axe features a curved bit to strike deeply and efficiently into wood, while the straight beard adds structural rigidity to manage hard blows. Blade length measured from the toe to heel is a generous 4-1/8 inches, making this axe suitable for general cutting chores around the camp, farm, or home. The handle is made of solid hickory for strength and impact resistance, with a thick shoulder to prevent cracking or shearing and a prominent knob to optimize grip.
