why this product

This handmade axe is made from repurposed plowing discs used to sow seeds on farms in Brazil, and it is exclusive to Kaufmann Mercantile. The sturdy blade and solid materials create a reliable tool that looks good enough to display in your home. To create the axe, carbon steel is hand-cut using a pattern and a plasma cutter. Since every axe is cut by hand, no two tools are the same. The metal then goes through a process of hammering, straightening, sanding and tempering. Both sides of the horn and hickory wood handle are then “sandwiched” over the lower portion of the blade, attached and secured with solid, gleaming brass rivets. The axe arrives as a one-of-a-kind item, and with every chop, it will grow to be ever more special for you and the tasks at hand. This item ships within 8-10 weeks of order

use & care

Keep dry and store inside. Lubricate with mineral oil as needed. Over time, the blade will create a unique patina, adding to the character of your axe. 

production & design

Designer Max Poglia has come to call New York City home, but he remains rooted in his Brazilian heritage. He began his eponymous line, Poglia, as a way to merge both worlds: The line of products is designed out of Brooklyn and manufactured by artisans in southern Brazil.
