Vintage Russian Military Camp Axe

Rated 5.00 out of 5 based on 5 customer ratings
(5 customer reviews)


SKU: 485201 Categories: ,


Manufactured in a time period when tools were made to last. This is exactly what you want in a quality axe. Sturdy solid wood handle and heavy duty steel head. Perfect for splitting or chopping. Each axe head is just a little bit different due to the forging process and each one has its own unique character. In addition to being very functional, it would make an excellent decoration. Length of handle measures 28’’. Weighs approximately 4lbs. Genuine European Military Surplus. Unused condition, may have patina on axe head due to long term storage.

    Excellent quality, brand new. Years of service to come. Beautiful European style of axe. Handle could use a linseed oil finish as it does not come with any finish. But really a minor thing, ready to use as soon as you get it.

    Completely Unused. Unfinished handle (just like all the unused surplus axes i’ve ever seen). Solid old school construction. Steel seems to be of good hardness, sharpens up well. Time will tell how well it holds that edge.

    It’s balanced well, good weight and handle size.

    Foundry stamp on mine says 1982, so it’s soviet era

    The head is a little broader than i thought it would be. The widest part where the cutting edge is is about 6 inches wide. That’s not a complaint, i just didn’t imagine it that way.

    I think these are great, I’ll probably buy another.

    Received mine today-brand new and rock solid. Handle is odd compared to what I’m used but more than stout enough. 1982 issue. Use it or antique it and use as cool wall hanger.

    Agree on all accounts like the rest of the reviews. Mine was a 1982, like new, needs some linseed oil on the handle. Funky ace head but sure it will work well enough if I ever have to use it.

    Got my axe today…only took 4 days….FAST SHIPPING to Maine..well built.. only issue was the head was a tad I hammered the steel wedge a bit and it was tight as bark on a tree. Well balanced and deliveries a nice splitting action. I will add some tongue oil or sealer right off on the wooden handle…Might buy another for my UTV..
