Council Tool Velvicut Bad Axe Boy’s Axe and Sheath
This ax is modeled after the well-known “Boy’s Axe” of the US Forest Service. The axe is pierced with a special punch forming ribs horizontally and vertically inside the eye. Our unique upsetting technique creates more contact area and “bite” between the head to handle joint. The result? A stronger, and more durable tool.??The Dayton patterned head features somewhat thicker cheeks than other axes in the marketplace. Its angle is approximately 25° but is slightly convex. Its profile, in conjunction with its sharpness, provides a deep bite into wood like American hardwoods without sticking. Each axe is hand-sharpened (to fit a gauge, ensuring consistency).?? The handle pattern features a prominent grip and a slim body that allows the handle to flex a bit, improving the ergonomics. Its traditional pattern embodies the heirloom quality of axes from times gone by.
A great mid-sized tool perfect for camping or to keep handy in a vehicle or at home. It’s small enough to split kindling but “BAD” enough to chop a small tree.
