This is a small and light cutting axe, perfect to have in your backpack for a trip in the forest or when out hunting. It has a rounded and polished poll (or butt), which not only makes it good for peeling animal skins, but also makes it smoother to get in and out of different pockets and compartments without getting stuck.
The leather sheath is of course a very handy companion to the backpack axe. It is sold separately. The colour of the leather can vary.

The weight indicates axe head and handle. The handle is made by ash wood. The total weight might vary because wood is a living material that can have different density and characteristics, even though we make sure all handles have the same humidity.
An axe, adze or hammer head seldom come loose. But it can happen. Wood is a living material. The most common reason is moisture. For example: The axe have been stored outside and then get inside in a warm and dry place. The wood then get smaller/shrink. The number one advice: Hit the wedge!
