Quick Description

Finished work axe with a white hickory handle and strong edge that is ready to use.

Our work axes are 100% Australian Made and are manufactured to the same high standards that make our racing axes world-renowned. If you look after the work axe, it will become your favourite tool to pick up and use.

What makes it cool…

After making our 190 work axe for a few months, we decided to make a slightly lighter and smaller version. This work axe is similar to the old 4.5 pound work axe that my Grandfather used to swing out bush. It has a 2.0 kg head with a 155mm wide blade. 

What makes it a great axe is the strong bevel at 20 degrees, giving the edge longevity but at a weight of only 2.6kg total weight. The hollow has a satin finish so it is easy for you to look after and maintain your work axe.

And when we say it is Australian Made we mean it, every part of the work axe, handle and cover.

Fitted with our favourite Jimmy Head white hickory handle, strong, durable and a great feel when you are swinging it.

Protected with a Kenny Olney leather cover built to protect the axe edge when not in use.

Ladies you can now select an Axewomen logo for your next favourite WA165 Work Axe.

Edge options -

Standard edge is a good all round edge that is a good balance between cutting speed and longevity.

Strong edge is more rounded and has a greater edge angle that will cut slower, but will last longer, and is perfect for tough dry wood.

If you're unsure, new to wood chopping, or unfamiliar with axe sharpening and maintenance - the strong edge is recommended.

Engraving also available - Personalise your work axe with your name which replaces 2.0kg Work Axe above the logo (Note: a 15 letter character limit applies).

You won’t be disappointed.
