The Midnight Forge Karito Battle Axe is an impressive addition to the Honshu special edition series that takes their most popular weapons and give them a sleek, non-reflective look. The battle axe takes the traditional bearded blade design that was used by Japanese carpenters and elevates it into a formidable battle weapon. The 6” wide, 7Cr13 stainless steel bearded axe head has a hair-shaving sharp, 8 1/2” blade that has a black finish. The curved handle is crafted of impact-resistant, injection molded nylon and it has a heavily EDM textured grip. The 27” overall battle axe comes with a premium leather cover with heavy-duty belt loop and double-snap closure.
