The Wood Tamer 680 Carving axe by Strongway Tools coming soon.

It’s forged in 52100 steel and will have a 22.5 degree (symmetrical, inclusive) flat bevel because we are that confident that the steel will hold up. This makes it a real slicer of a carving axe with zero glancing. Not sure what I mean by glancing? You know that “clack clack” sound you hear when you’re axing and it’s bouncing off your piece? That’s glancing and can be caused by a bevel that is too broad or an edge that is too dull.

The first drop will have black ash handles and following drops will be raw ash (oiled).
Total weight is 680gms. Cutting edge is 110mm. Handle length is 285mm. Total axe length is 320mm from Toe (top tip of the axe) to base of handle.

Full credit has to go to @timothy.j.henry and @strong_way_tools who have been involved with the design and creation of this axe. If you noticed that it has similar characteristics to the rest of the Wood Tamer axe range that is intentional as we are really happy with the entire range’s performance.

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.

Customer Reviews

Based on 2 reviews

Beautiful axe, quite lightweight. The shape of the handle is very comfortable to hold.


Amazing fit and finish and just the right size for carving. Able to control on the cuts around the neck and also able to choke back and really hit hard if needed. Excellent design and beautiful craftsmanship.
