A light but surprisingly capable double lugged axe with a slender bit and a relatively long slim handle.
The shape of the bit is designed to bite with minimal effort, which combined with plenty of leverage from the long handle, maximises performance by every means other than weight - an axe that was made to be carried.
Axe heads of this form have been found in close proximity with larger bearded axes, suggesting that they may have been used together. Ideal for notching and trimming in carpentry applications, the high performance to weight ratio of the Borovsk 9 also makes it a very handy trail axe.
