Helko Werk Journeyman Pack Axe


The Classic Journeyman is Helko's solution to the quest for the ultimate wilderness pack axe. A cross between a hatchet and conventional axe, this pack axe is designed to be lightweight, compact, and easy to carry while trekking through the wilderness. 

The weight and length allow for either one or two handed use, and it is equally capable of both cutting and splitting work. The Journeyman is the perfect all-purpose companion for the backpacker, camper, or woodsman. The butt end, opposite to the blade, can be used for light hammering and is perfect for striking in tent stakes. Comes with Helko Werk's standard top grade American cow hide 6oz leather adjustable sheath.

Five stars highly recommended field axe for Australian timber.

by Steve -

IMO if you want to purchase an axe intended for hardwood and Australian timbers, you can't go wrong with Helko classic range. Contrary to the popular opinion, Comparing Helko's classic range with the Gransfors Bruks traditional field axe, the Helko is superior. It sticks less is a better splitter and more practical if you need to choke up on the handle. The axe is hard to fault; it comes sufficiently sharp to use straight out of box and quality is equal to any Swedish manufacturer. The apparent negative, buckling up the blade guard is annoying, laces would be more practical.
