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. 

  • 2.25# head will last a lifetime; we guarantee it.  (overall tool weight is right at 3.5#)
  • Forged using 5160 grade alloy steel. “Council” is displayed on one side of the head, and the other is proudly marked “USA“.
  • Bit is heat treated and quenched approximately 1″ inch from the cutting edge, then tempered for maximum edge holding and toughness. Final hardness Rc 52-56.
  • 28″ handle (before assembly) is made of grade “A” American hickory and selected for grain orientation and density, making it strong. Mounted to head in the traditional manner using a softwood wedge along with a round steel wedge for added security.
  • Axe head is coated with light oil to prevent rusting and to showcase the exceptional Council Tool craftsmanship.  A Linseed oil coating is applied to protect the handle.
  • Premium leather sheath protects the tool and user and features a buckle for fastening, a belt slit and an embossed logo.  Like its companion axe, the sheath is MADE IN USA.
  • Beware:  This well-balanced axe arrives razor sharp.
