Helko Pioneer – 2.5lb Felling Axe. Description Reminiscent of the bygone days of the early American settlers, the Pioneer is a lightweight American felling axe. Reliable and highly versatile, the Pioneer is a great choice for camping and general backyard work. Also referred to as a ‘boy’s axe’ due to its small size, the Pioneer was designed for light felling, splitting, and cutting work. Each piece is handcrafted by Helko’s Master Smiths with over 170 years of expertise. Once the smith is satisfied with his work, the Helko crown logo is hammered into the head. No supplementary work, such as grinding, buffing, or painting is performed, thereby allowing each blade to proudly display its forging marks. As no two pieces are exactly alike, each axe is truly unique.
