Regular price $105.00
A razor sharp carving axe that is light enough that your arms don't tire with use but heavy enough to remove the wood efficiently. It also makes a great axe for splitting firewood, bushcraft or at the campsite.
This axe is one of the most affordable on the market and is perfect for carvers at all levels. The axe heads are drop forged abroad. Each is then ground and honed by Brian Alcock, last self employed traditional grinder in Sheffield (see video below).
Hickory handles are made to JoJo's design in the UK. Each is roughened for grip and finished with linseed oil.
The weight of the head is 550g and the total weight around 720g, handle length is 31cm. The short handle is essential for speed as cutting strokes involve pivoting from the wrist.
The axe comes sharpened and ready for use. Note that sharpness is best maintained if the edge is protected. We highly recommend purchasing your axe with leather sheath included.
Due to the nature of the natural materials we use, handle colours & patterns will vary, as will sheath colours & textures.

Bought one to replace my heavy duty Mora knife for initial spoon blank shaping. I have used this axe on both green and seasoned wood of willow, cherry and hawthorn and it is an amazing piece of kit. Bought with the leather sheath and both items are well crafted and more than up to the task. It is nice and light and comes razor sharp and most importantly won’t cost you a fortune. I am so impressed I have just ordered the spoon knife also to complete my tool set.
