Developed in cooperation with renowned carver Beth Moen, the Small Carver Axe by Julia Kalthoff is both  versatile and precise. Beginner and experienced carvers will benefit from the small yet strong design.

The head comes in at 550 grams and is easy to swing and manoeuvre. The axe head is hardened to 57 Rockwell so will hold its edge well and offers ease of sharpening. The 30-32 degree angle on the axe makes it truly versatile and perfect for both hard and soft woods.

The balance point of the axe is the same as your grip point meaning the axe has a lighter feel and that every gram works to your benefit.

Hand forged in Sweden from Swedish steel with a Swedish ash handle, this axe is one you will treasure for life.

Julia is so confident in the quality of her axes that each comes with its own serial number and lifetime guarantee.

Sheath Included.

Small. Strong. Well Balanced. Tough Edge.

What a great company, recommended to me by Phoenix Creations and spot on in all departments. Ordering is simple and Chris called me to explain a possible reduction in cost for the same outcome, which reflects high quality service. Items for both my orders have been superbly packaged and delivered promptly. Thank you Wood Tamer.

I really recommend Wood Tamer for their friendly service, attention to quality and desire to ensure that their customers are happy and working well with their tools. They really went above and beyond to ensure I bought the right knives, even after I bought them. Excellent service!

I ordered a spoon carving set from the Wood Tamer and found the ordering process simple and the products were delivered to WA quickly. I found all the knives and the Axe to be sharp and ready use. Thanks for your service. I'll be using this service in the future again.
