Estwing Double Bit Axe (Black Eagle)


Category: Axes, Forestry, Hand Tools


Estwing Double Bit Axe

Estwing has been a leader in striking tools since 1923, bringing world-class engineering together with high-quality materials and superior production to address the specific requirements of each and every tool. 

Estwing's American-made Black Eagle Double Bit Axes are designed for serious professionals, sportsmen and military professionals. It is called a double-bit axe because of the two blades on the head, making it a versatile cutting and chopping tool and eliminating the need for two different axes.

The common use of the Double Bit Axe head is to have one side razor-sharp and the other side more dull and rounded. The razor-sharp side can be used for chopping and cutting while the duller side for splitting.

Black Eagle tools are perfectly balanced and weighted and made to last. American forged in one piece out of genuine American steel.
