The Condor Combat Axe was inspired by the fighting axes of the Vietnam era. This rendition was created and designed by world-renowned and award winning knife and tool designer Arlan D. Lothe. The axe features a special piercing point and a razor sharp edge. It also features special "shoulder spike" that can be used to stop an opponent running away by placing the spike into the shoulder and then pulling him off balance onto the ground. This feature is also found on several long handled Viking battle axes.
The material is 3/8" thick 1075 carbon steel, heat treated and tempered to about 53 Rockwell (a measure of hardness). This finish meets and exceeds several military specifications from the U.S. and other countries around the word. When maintained with light oil, this finish should not rust or stain.
The handle is double layers of black leather slightly tapered at the bottom to make the Combat Axe a great thrower. The oil tanned leather handles will last for years, but they can be replaced if need be by using the special screw rivets that hold the handle to the Axe. It one wishes the leather handle can be replaced with wood or other materials available at the owner's option.
The Condor Combat Axe has a limited lifetime warranty and a 100% satisfaction guarantee.
