It has been a dream of The Wood Tamer to release an Australian Made Carving Axe for a long time. Once we had finalised our design, we searched long and hard and sampled with Axe makers until we found The Farmer's Forge. Mick's attention to detail is incredible. He was able to take our design concepts and tweaks and develop this beautiful model that we are proud to release to the world. 

In our search, we had several items that were on our non-negotiable and wish list. scroll down the page to see what makes this carving axe so special.

100% Australian Made 

We wanted to be able to showcase the amazing quality of tools made here in Australia to the rest of the world. Given the pandemics effects on global shipping we also wanted to be able to source carving axes locally. Every part of this axe is made here in Australia.

Australian Timber Haft

We wanted to be able to show the rest of the world the amazing hardwood timbers we have available here so we have gone with Spotted Gum for this particular carving axe. It is a beautifully coloured timber that improves with ages and doesn't look grubby from use. It is super tough and with the right care will last a very long time. 

Faceted Handle

Whether holding the handle at the base swell for full powered swings or choking up on the head for controlled cuts, the handle sits comfortably in your hand without having to hold on tightly. This reduces fatigue. The swell at the back of the handle fits well into the Vee between your thumb and pointer finger further reducing fatigue.

Superbly Balanced

The balance point of the axe is perfectly located up at the choke point, making for for great control cuts and also when holding the axe at the base of the handle you get maximum swing power.


Each axe head is hand forged by The Farmer's Forge from 5160 steel which means awesome edge retention. A 30 degree hollow grind bevel makes for excellent carving. This hardwearing axe is designed to last for generations.

Quality Craftsmanship

Mick's attention to detail means that this carving axe arrives super sharp and ready to use. Each axe comes with an optimally designed handcrafted leather sheath.
