Product Info for COUNCIL TOOL Velvicut Premium American Axe JP40DV36C

The Council Tool 4 lb. heirloom American felling axe is produced by their most experienced artisans. The Dayton pattern is a timeless shape and much preferred by skilled woodsmen for a full-sized felling axe. After the head is forged, much care is taken in the finishing process. A sharp axe is a safe axe, as it is less likely to glance out of the cut, so after rough grinding in a robotic work cell it is sharpened by hand by an experienced craftsman using increasingly fine abrasives, then finished with leather stropping.

Forged from 5160 grade alloy steel for strength, toughness, durability and the ability to hold an edge. The axe head is heat treated and quenched to produce a hardened edge extending 1-1/2 inches up the bit for maximum edge holding. The edge is tempered to Rc 52-56 to hold an edge without becoming brittle.

36" Handle is made of grade "A" American hickory and its traditional pattern embodies the heirloom quality of axes from times gone by. The handle is selected for grain orientation and density, then mounted to the head in a traditional manner using a softwood wedge along with a round steel wedge for added security.

A premium leather sheath is included to protect the tool and user. It features a buckle for fastening and an embossed logo. Axe Head is Lifetime Guaranteed. All Axe components and the Sheath are Made In the USA.
