Dutch Axe heeft de krant gehaaald...


Dutch axes are traditionally hand forged in a coal fire in the Dutch province of Friesland.

Every single axe we forge is unique to it's own, because of the labour intensive process.

Our axes are sold in limited numbers to customers all over the world and are forged to use for life.

​Every piece we craft is original and lovingly built to last the test of time. From new designs too reproductions or repairs, everything we do is created with passion, patience and quality materials.

Axe handles, leather sheaths etc. are all sourced as locally as possible.

In today’s world, it’s easy to lose sight of the value inherent in handmade products.

It only rotates once!!


Throwing an axe, or hatchet, is simple and fun activity that seems like it should be dangerous, but it’s not.


The two-handed throw We call this the beginner throw because it allows you to have more control of your axe. Simply grip your axe with both hands and raise the axe straight over your head. Check your surroundings, and throw the axe, releasing it once your hands reach eye-level.

For the two-handed throw, you’ll want to stand with your feet parallel to the target, roughly shoulder width apart. Once, you get comfortable throwing, you’ll want to adjust your distance from the target so you can stick it every time!


The one-handed throw

Looking for something a bit more challenging? Try the one-handed throw. This throw probably more familiar to you if you’ve ever throwing a football. Grip the axe, raise it over head, and release when your hand gets to eye-level.

For the one-handed throw, you’ll want to place the opposite leg of your throwing arm forward, and throw the axe as you would a football or baseball. Once, you get comfortable throwing, adjust your distance from the target until you consistently can stick your axe in the target.
