This 4.5 lb. EXOCORE Single Bit Axe is part of the line of axes launched by DEWALT® designed to withstand harsh forestry environments and to make the user"s job easier. With a hollow, light-weight handle, swings are quicker and more balanced for deeper, easier cuts. Scalloped cutting edges easily cut into wood and release from material. These have our Carbon Fiber Composite overstrike to protect the most vulnerable part of the tool where most long handle tools commonly break.
