The Tasmania Competition Axe is a modern rendition of the vintage Tasmanian pattern racing axes. Quality, affordable racing axes are rare, to say the least, and are often hard to come by without spending a small fortune. Helko Werk’s Tasmania is a streamlined version of a typical competition grade racing axe, available at an extremely attractive price. The perfect choice both for racing experts and novices entering the world of timber sporting. The Tasmania is an ideal training axe for competitions where only authentic competition style racing axes are permitted to be used. The blade is sharpened for general purpose chopping and can be used out of the box, although more advanced users may wish to profile or hone the edge to their liking. Outside of the competition arena, the Tasmania is commonly used as a felling axe on both softwoods and hardwoods. The shorter handle and heavier head allows for quick swings while delivering powerful cuts.
