Splitting froe. 14”

froe-open.png

This froe is hand forged from high carbon 9260 spring steel. After precise and careful hardening tempering and annealing, the edge reaches Rockwell 60-62 (HRC). Final sharpening is done on a felt disc using chrome oxide compound to give the tool a razor sharp edge. A traditional mixture of beeswax, linseed oil and pine turpentine is used on the steel to provide an anti-rust finish.

The handle is hand lathed elm that is tightly fitted into the eye socket and secured with a wooden wedge. Each handle is made individually to fit the dimensions of the eye precisely. The handle is also treated with linseed oil and beeswax. Each froe comes with a handmade, custom dyed saddle tan leather blade guard.
