Built for safely hauling an axe that is so important in the north-woods. Inspired by the norse bearded axes of olde, our Boreal Axe Sheath is handmade from heavy duty harness leather from S.B. Foot Tannery in Red Wing, MN. After being cut to shape by a hydraulic press and hot-stamped, the kit goes to our sewing and finishing floor, where the leather welt is bonded between the two facing sheets and sewn together using our industrial sewing machines and heavy duty thread. To finish it off, we hand-pound and finish three harness rivets and cap it off with a solid brass snap to reliably secure the sheath to your axe. Built for hauling that single irreplaceable tool that is so important in the north-woods, the axe. Few implements are so indispensable in the deep boreal forests of North America as a high quality axe.
