Bison 1879 originates from the family tradition of master-smith Moritz Trept, a tradition that later became Bison, the company. Today Bison is renowned for producing individually unique, hand-forged axes and forestry tools. Assorted hickory wood handles add to the distinct individual look and will vary between tool made. The natural colour of hickory wood varies between a very light beige to a darker more reddish tone. The colour has no effect on the quality or usability of the handle, in fact, a lot of customers value this natural colour scheme giving their axe an authentic uniqueness. The assembly of the head and handle uses 2 safety wedges for hatchets and 3 safety wedges for axes. The wedges lock firmly into the wood to secure the axe head. The handle is slightly thicker than the axe head diameter, this is necessary to get a strong and safe fitting during assembly. Bison handles are fitted using high pressure and during assembly there may be some splinters. A light sandpaper easily removes these. Hand-forged, crafted tools with authentic individuality is what differentiates Bison 1879.
