Lashing Suggestions

If you're unfamiliar, we HIGHLY RECOMMEND watching some videos on hafting & lashing techniques before trying it out yourself. Seriously… improperly mounting or hafting your hand axe can result in significant injury to yourself, or any living thing in your general vicinity.

With no dedicated lashing pattern or technique that works for all situations – the Axxis was designed with lashing holes strategically placed throughout the frame so you can find the pattern that works best for you.

The way you choose to tie your Axxis depends on the type and length of lashing material you have, the type of handle/haft wood being used, the abrasiveness of the wood relative to cordage, etc.

Be careful when testing your tie job. Make sure the Axxis is fully secure and tied off BEFORE you swing. Check your lashings frequently when chopping.
