Nessmuk Bag Axe
In the 1800ís outdoor writer George Washington Sears designed, used, and
made popular through his writings a new concept, the light weight pack axe.
Nessmuk was Searsí pen name. (Do a search for ďNessmukĒ and youíll be amazed

This version of the Nessmuk axe is near the same shape and size as the
original. With a 12 inch handle it weighs around 1 pound 6 ounces with
sheath. In the near future, Iíll be offering several prototypes for sale.
These first prototypes were cast in either 52100 ball bearing steel, S5
shock resistant steel, or D2 high carbon tool steel. Handles are flame
hardened hickory. Sheaths are hand-stitched horse hide with antler buttons
and rawhide reinforcing to prevent the blade from cutting the sheath upon
I do not take orders, nor do I maintain a waiting list. As I have axes
available, Iíll post them here one at a time. If you see one, it is
available. If you want it CALL ME to reserve it. You can pay online.
