Council Tool - Premium Saddle Axe
This versatile axe is a traditional Velvicut® Premium US Made Axe pattern. Drop forged from premium US 5160 knife steel, known for its superior characteristics and blade retention. This axe is a beautiful axe, however it was designed and manufactured for work. It has been heat treated, tempered and crafted with a distinctive flat grind on each blade for maximum versatility. This specific design is a multi-functional, light weight, and packable axe pattern that received its name from being traditionally carried in a saddle bag while on horseback.
This innovative yet traditional double bit axe sports phantom bevels that greatly reduce surface friction and bite deeper than many convex bladed axes and the bevels also serve for easy removal of the axe bit after a deep cut into the wood. The highly versatile saddle axe design has the extremely sharp 25 degree flat grind on the left edge for cutting, shaving, and carving and a more robust 32 degree flat grind on the right edge for notching, splitting and heavier jobs. All combine to make a very well designed, versatile and useful axe. All Velvicut Saddle Axes come with a fine leather welted double bit cover. The New Velvicut Premium Saddle Axe is a 2lb double bit axe on a select 16” hickory handle and Council Tool Premium Axes carry the only lifetime warranty in the market on the steel head against failure in craftsmanship and materials.
