Product Description

Part of Council Tool's new "Sport Utility" lineup, this axe has gone through a major upgrade from their standard line of painted axes. Rather than a painted finish, the Sport Utility line is finished in a dark natural forged finish, with a polished, sharp and ready to use blade, and wedged high and proud with a poplar wood wedge and a steel wedge rather than the previous aluminum wedge. The naturally dark forged and heat-treated head is oiled just like their premium axes.

2 lbs Hudson Bay Axe head outfitted with a 28" curved hickory handle. One or two-handed camp axe. Used for light splitting, chopping, driving tent pegs, etc. The pattern is thought to have originated from “Biscayan” in Northern Spain, near France. French traders used this hand axe as a trade tool in their dealings with Native Americans for fur and other commodities in the Hudson Bay area, St. Lawrence River, and other trade routes.

  • Head made from forged tool steel
  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting
  • Designed to exceed ANSI standards--edge is Rc 48-55 in hardness at 1.25" back from cutting edge (the poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in their forged condition)
  • Sport Utility Finish: head coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the forged finish
  • 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 with a traditional double wedge system
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond--approximately 1/4" of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly
