Council Tool Velvicut Hudson Bay Axe

  • A beautiful, handmade Hudson Bay pattern axe perfect for camping, hunting or hiking
  • Forged from 5160 grade alloy steel for strength, toughness, durability and ability to hold an edge
  • Heat treated and quenched to produce a hardening edge extending 1 inch up the bit for maximum edge holding. The edge is tempered to RC 50-54 to hold an edge without becoming brittle
  • Axe head is rough ground in a robotic work cell and sharpened by an experienced hand with increasingly fine abrasives and finished with leather stropping
  • Relative to other patterns, the Hudson Bay has a very short eye length. This reduces the contact area between the head and handle, which can lead to looseness. Using a new and innovative design, the eye is pierced with a special punch forming ribs horizontally and vertically inside the eye. This creates more contact area and bite between the head to handle joint
  • Handle is made of grade "A" American hickory, mounted to the head with a softwood wedge crossed with a steel wedge for additional security
  • Leather sheath with buckle is included
  • All parts including sheath are made in USA
  • Total length: 45cm, blade length: 18cm x 10.5cm cutting edge, weight 1.15kg
