SNOW11: Penobscot Bay Kindling Axe
Snow & Nealley
Snow & Nealley of Smyrna Maine has been making fine quality axes since 1864. The Snow and Nealley Penobscot Bay Kindling Axe is a backpacker's dream, Compact enough to fit in a backpack, this premium quality axe is ideal for splitting kindling at camp or on the trail. The 1-3/4 lb. Hudson Bay head is drop-forged from high-carbon steel, flame hardened for strength and durability and then worked to exacting specifications to provide you with a tool that has a look and feel all its own. The knobbed 18 inch American hickory handle is comfortable and accommodates one-handed use. Comes with a leather blade protector. All Snow & Nealley axes have a lifetime guarantee and will exceed your highest standards.
Snow & Nealley axes are being made once again in the USA thanks to an Amish man and his sons who bought the iconic brand. Caring deeply about their work, they drop forge each blade from high carbon steel, then hand-temper, grind and finish it. The result is top notch craftsmanship.

I love this axe. It's well made and well balanced, it's an American work of art. The straight handle is perfect for driving felling wedges when felling trees. This hand axe is my new favorite.
I just got one of these. The grain in my handle is a little more straight than this one. Grain direction, for something this small, isnt as big a deal as it is on a felling axe. They are 100% made here in the USA, forged head and all. I managed to only bust up a couple small branches, and this took that with ease. Its large enough to swing with 2 hands if necessary, and small enough to use one handed. I plan on doing a lot of thorough testing on this over the course of the winter, but, so far, based on a single use, this is a great purchase for a US made product.%uFEFF
This Kindling axe is just plain awesome! The weight and balance are spot on and it works great one handed. Highly recommended.
This is a beautiful hatchet. Snow & Nealley make outstanding axes. This hatchet is solid and durable and American made.
