About Moscow Axe Throwing

At Moscow Axe Throwing our goal is to compliment the calm beauty of the Palouse with the timeless sport of Axe Throwing!

Axe throwing's history is an intriguing topic. Due to the low cost of production, axes have been used as both a tool and a weapon throughout history.

Some of the first tools used by humans were axes. In the Stone Age, they were widespread. When they were first created, they lacked a handle (or haft), and the cutting edge was fashioned of stone. They became weapons very quickly. Thrown axes, however, were not utilized until 400–500 AD.

Among throwing axes, the Francisca axe is arguably the most well-known. It was a weapon in the early middle ages. It was widely recognized as the national weapon of the Franks, but many other Germanic Tribes also employed it at the time. 

Some historians contend that axes were not actually thrown during wars. They think it would be foolish to lose a cherished weapon and then find themselves defenseless in the face of their adversaries. They contend that it was instead utilized for food hunting. Thrown weapons were frequently employed because it was difficult to get within an arm’s length of an animal.

Some historians contend that throwing the axe came before engaging in hand-to-hand combat. They gave their combat operations a psychological advantage. It was challenging to estimate where the axe would land because the Francisca frequently had a random trajectory. Enemies would frequently flee after a salvo out of concern that another one would follow.

Tyler Sabin

After visiting Heber Hatchets in Spokane with a few friends Tyler was inspired to start Hansa Hatchets. Being a fulltime Manager in Pullman, he knew he would need business partners with available time and wisdom. Having started a few businesses around different parts of the US, Tyler wanted to challenge himself with something different. In 2017 he graduated from WSU in Pullman with a Bachelor of Science. Shortly thereafter he quickly discovered his love of business after reading the works of Robert Kiyosaki. Tyler spent the following years increasing his knowledge of business, getting involved in real estate, and developing his business education empirically.

With Hansa Hatchets being an evolving project, Tyler sought partners who could compliment his knowledge and capital with their own critical thinking and success driven attitudes. With his contribution he would need onsite management and an additional capital provider. After pitching this idea to various business networks, Chris and Greg displayed these as well as the complementary abilities and experiences Tyler wanted to work with. As an alumnus of WSU, he is excited to be returning to the Palouse with a vision for the region and to have a great team to work with.
