The premier class in tree felling sport and -sawing started into the new season on May 21, in the grounds of the Neandertal Road Stop in Mettmann. the competition series started with the Amarok Cup with two knockouts. 20 athletes gave their best with axe and saw. In the end often fractions of a second decided over victory or defeat - and only the top finishers qualified for the German championships.
Razor sharp axes for the best of the best
Professional sport lumberjacks, including Dirk Braun, the 7-times German Champion and twice the European champion, appreciate especially the Sportaxt OX 44H with a hand forged head of high-quality, alloyed special steel and a razor sharp training edge for softwood. The unbreakable Kuhfuß hickory handle provides maximum safety. It lies good in the hand and thanks to the proven triple-wedge technology the axe head and shaft are particularly securely connected.
