s 3.5# Jersey Axe W/ 36″ Straight Handle


Authentic frontiersman vibes without the fur hat, beard or scurvy

Whether for bushcraft survival or just keeping the firewood supply strong, the Council Tools 2# Jersey Axe with a 36” curved handle is the right tool for the job. A two-handed all-purpose axe with a hickory handle designed for splitting, chopping and driving tent pegs, this axe offers more leverage and striking power for bigger jobs. While larger than one-handed versions and with roots dating back to the Hudson Bay and St. Lawrence River fur trade, this is still a versatile size of axe to be brought along on camping missions, coastal adventures and canoe voyages, just like the original frontiersmen.

  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge.
