Cutting Edge 3½” / 89mm, Head Weight 1½lb / 0.68kg, Handle length 18” / 457mm
An on-site favourite for timber framers! Great for shaping pegs & easing tenons. You can even use the ground poll as a hammer (best keep the sheath on when you’re doing this!).
The Carpenter’s Axe has a long, thin and straight edge with a straight bevel face and a narrower poll, giving an even cutting surface for great carving. The forged inward curve from the heel to the lip of the head allows your hand to grip almost straight above the centre of the cutting edge, which is important when your work requires stability and precision. The handle is straight to suit all grips. Its flat, straight shape makes this axe suitable for work in dry wood.
Comes to you sharp, with a protective leather sheath, and a copy of The Axe Book
