The Forester is a highly capable, full-size general purpose axe. Its 3 ½ pound head provides enough heft and power for most cutting and felling work. It is big enough to take down medium and large trees without over-encumbering the average user. If you are looking for a full-size axe but aren’t able to comfortably wield the larger Expedition, the Forester is a solid choice and perfect for the farm, home, or cabin. The head is buffed and polished to a highly reflective finish that reduces cutting friction and improves rust resistance.
