Brant&Cochran Dirigo Belt Axe

I have the Allegash Cruiser and wanted the baby brother Dirigo. Two of the finest blades in history. Total Smithsonian American treasure. I was surprised by the weight of the Dirigo. Not bad but reminded me of a small axe rather than a hatchet. But the handle is proportional and this bad **** chops like a champ. Very impressive tool and leave it to Whiskey River to come through with a good price and an excellent exchange. Very happy!
