Perfect for throwing or chopping, this really is one fun axe.
The Wetterhall throwing axe was traditionally used by lumberjacks, who benefitted from always having a sharp edge. While one side could be used for rough work, they could be more careful with the other edge.
Today it is primarily used in throwing competition among enthusiasts. Like all Hultafors axes the throwing axe has been hand forged from Swedish quality steel. Part of the forging process on the head means it is struck 40-60 times increasing its density and resulting in greater durability.
