Whether you’re fulfilling your role-playing fantasies as a drunken dwarf or chopping down the first tree in a suburban stand to make way for the new mini-mall, you need a special axe. Ox-head, or as it’s known in Germany, Ochsenkopf, plates its double-bit felling axe in either silver or gold for all your extra-curricular activities.
The 2.2 lb. double-bit head has two 5″ wide cutting edges and is attached to a 35″ hickory handle. Because of its fine tapered edges, normally you’d use an axe like this for felling or limbing trees, not for splitting or levering.
An unplated version of this fine axe would normally run you $130, but if you must have the gold-plated axe you’ll drop an extra $190 ($320 total). If gold is a little too ostentatious for you or you’re hunting werewolves, the silver plated axe runs $300. Bear in mind this is a special-order item and you need to order it at least eight weeks in advance of your event.
