Take good care of your LEVERAXE®
Cover the blade after use and store it in a covered dry location. The paint will wear off from the parts that touch the wood, but this is normal. Oil the blade occasionally to prevent rust.
You don't have to sharpen the blade too frequently, because it works perfectly even when a bit dull. The blade works dull because it sinks only about an inch into the wood and the blade spreads wood about 2 - 3 inches. You can sharpen the blade with the grinding stone or wheel. If using a wheel, you can finish it off with grindstone.
Composite Handle: Don´t storage in straight sunlight and don´t use under -20 degrees celcius. Otherwise it is carefree.
The axe head has a 10 year warranty for the manufacturing defect only. Damage caused by poor maintenance or careless handling will not be compensated.
