Features
  • Forged tool steel head. Made in USA.
  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Head coated with black enamel and the cutting edge in clear lacquer to deter rust.
  • 18″ American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured in a traditional manner with a wooden wedge and a round steel wedge.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″-1″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly making to overall length of the tool around 17″
  • Durable sheath with snap and belt slit is included.
Care

NOTE: Final tool length is usually 1-1.5 inches shorter that the listed handle lengths. After assembly, each axe is hung and trimmed, removing the excess wood from the top of the blade after wedging the handle. The Standard 18" will measure around 17" once trimmed. 

Some axe companies list the axe handle length after it has been hung and trimmed.  Council Tool uses the original handle length so that a customer can find the appropriate replacement handle if needed.
