The Axe with a short handle is very efficient at what it does and it is designed for woodcutting and whittling. Thanks to the design of the Axe blade, it doesn't get stuck on the log while cutting. Compared to the Axe with a longer handle, this one works well as a one-hand axe. Roselli's Axe comes with a simplistic, tanned leather case to protect the cutting edge. The handle is made from birch and coated withlinseed oil to ensure a firm grip, even when wet.
