What size/style axe should I get?

Finding the right axe is a blend of your personal preferences and the task you'll be using it for. Most Trust Co. axes are of the "felling axe" variety – which are designed cut down trees with a slender shape that can cut against the grain. But, you can use them just as well making kindling for a backyard fire.

So that's maybe a long way of saying "it's up to you."

Can I send you an axe I have to be restored?

From time to time we do custom restorations. If you've got an axe that needs some loving care, drop us a line at with some info and pictures so we can size up the job.
