    Now made of case hardened steel, our froe is better than ever. The blade is stronger, giving you more use and great results.
    • Proven effective in continuous use since the 1800s
    • Dozens of uses in building log cabins, making furniture, shingles and kindling, and weaving baskets
    • Case hardened, so the blade lasts longer
    • 16" hickory handle
    • 15" sharp steel blade
    • 4 lb
    • Safer! All other methods put your hand below the cutting edge. Strike back (upper) edge with mallet to drive blade into wood. Pull on handle to pry splits from block.

    We're always looking for ways to improve, so we took our beloved froe and made it better. The steel blade is now case hardened, ultimately making it stronger and last longer. By using a special heating process and dipping the blade into a compound (usually high in carbon), a hard outer layer is formed around the blade. This layer protects the inner raw (soft) steel, allowing you to sharpen the blade more before reaching the raw steel.

    "Hi Folks - I just this evening received the Froe and immediately put it to work making pegs for a timberframe building. The froe works beautifully and it has a very nice heft and feel. I roughed out about 30 pegs 1-inch X 1-inch in a few minutes."

    "This is a really good froe. It is very plain and the handle is unfinished. If I were comparing it to froes from woodqorking specialty stores, I might only give it 3 or 4 lamps. But those froes cost twice as much, so I am giving it the full 5. It is a user tool, not a show piece."

    "I've read all about froes. They can make wooden planks from logs. Boards cost a lot if you buy them, but I read you can make boards without sawing with it, costs nothing if you have trees.I'm making a 7' square, 3' high tomato planter box. Boards don't need to be perfect."
