BLADE CARE:
1085 high carbon and Damascus Steel are great at holding an edge, but will rust and stain if not taken care of properly. Please clean and dry your blade after use, and apply a light coat of oil (gun oil, coconut oil, canola...almost any clear oil) in order to protect the blade and add longevity.

Frequently Asked Questions

Care instructions

1085 high carbon and damascus steel will hold an edge very well, but they are not stainless steel. It may take on color with lots of use, and should be dried and oiled, if possible, to prevent rust. If you do get some rust, I prefer giving it a quick rub with a very fine (0000) steel wool and it usually easily takes care of it without scratching the metal.

You can use WD40 or rust remover, just be sure to clean the blade thoroughly before use, especially if using it for food.

The key is keeping it dry. Any moisture that sits on the metal will cause rust. That being said, I've had some in my drawer for years with no issues!

I wouldn't go chipping away at rocks, but they're pretty tough and should last you a long time!

Wedding Party / Corporate Gifts

Everything you see in the listings is in stock, but we may not have the quantity you need. Send me a note with any questions.

For large custom orders:
These are usually orders of 10+, and you can go full custom. We can do almost any amount given enough time.

You can engrave names or logos on the handles. You can replace my AIM logo with your own etched into the blade, or we can make a custom metal stamp of your logo for the leather sheaths.

Just remember, these are custom made and hand crafted, so we need months, not weeks. The more customized, the more time we need! They look ridiculously awesome, so bring it on!

Custom and personalized orders

Yes.

Notes:
-ENGRAVING goes on the wood handles. It's a laser engraver, so burning the image in. It can do fairly detailed images, even your drawn pictures and handwriting. Be creative! Engraving has a quick turn around.

-ETCHING goes on the metal. It looks great on the polished metal, but can be hard to see on the damascus. This needs to be less detailed. Think words, numbers, basic designs. WE ONLY DO THIS FOR LARGE ORDERS (10+). This takes time.

We will do full custom jobs for larger orders, including blade designs, handle materials, custom deep etched logos (instead of the AIM), custom leather stamps on the sheath, etc. Your gifts can be awesome!

Bought this for my boyfriend's birthday. He's a huge fan of Damascus steel and we don't have any yet. It shipped quickly, arrived in about a week. Its beautiful in person, heavy. The Damascus pattern is beautiful and genuine. It looks like it's made really well too! Can't wait to try it out! Highly Recommend!


Literally the first swing with this hatchet and the head fell off the handle. Turns out the eye was cut VERY poorly and just glued in place with wood glue. I spent a couple hours refinishing the handle and re-cutting the eye and all is well now. The head itself seems to be decent quality, if maybe a bit soft. My Harbor Freight 5 lbs sledge easily marked/deformed the butt after splitting a couple small logs.


Ax is beautiful and functional! Travis was also very helpful and responsive. 10/10 would recommend!
