about us

History is all business & all family

Precision Axes is a small, family-owned-and-operated business located in the central Sierra Nevada mountains of California. Five generations of our family have lived and worked in our forests. We are actively involved in the Timber Sports events on the west coast and are dedicated to preserving the traditional skills of the lumberjack.

In 2005 after being involved in our local jamboree event we identified the need for an affordable, yet durable product. Our first axes were handmade using old pipe and scrap metal for local competitors. As our business has progressed we are now able to use state-of-the-art technology and ship our products worldwide. We continue to make strides, grateful that this hobby has turned into a family enterprise.
