Small Carpenters Axe

GB465 Small Carpenters Axe £73.95

The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is not designed for pounding on a wedge. The head weighs 2 lb. The face is 2 1/2”. The 20” hickory handle has circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.

Large Spliting Axe

GB442 Large Splitting Axe £89.95

Designed for splitting chunks of wood, "rounds". The axe head is quite heavy with forged cheeks on both sides of the blade, "splitting wedge shaped crests" which power apart the grain of the wood. A Splitting Axe does not just have to slice into the wood –the thick axe blade pushes apart the wood.

Handle Length:- 27 inches
Cutting Edge:- 3.1 inches

The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is definitely not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge.
The axe has a 3" face and a 27" hickory handle and the head weighs 3 1/2 lb.


Large Carving Axe

GB475 Large Carving Axe £89.95

A chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head’s eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes the axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, is developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of Swedish Carving Techniques in cooperation with craftsman adviser Onni Linnanheimo. The handle is "rugged" to give a good grip.
The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle and the head weighs 2 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.

Handle Length:- 14 inches
Cutting Edge:- 4.2 inches

Handle Length:- 35 inches
Cutting Edge:- 6 inches

Throwing Axe

GB490-1 Throwing Axe £124.95

Different models of double-bit axes have been popular in the US since the last quarter of the 19th century because of its balanced feel and versatility. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow “felling edge”, while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, and used for knots and cutting near the ground where a finely sharpened blade was more likely to be damaged. Today the double-bit axe is used as a Working Axe or as a Throwing Axe for timber sports.
The head weighs 3 lb and the face of the bits are about 6”. The Throwing Axe has a 29” straight hickory handle and the Working Axe has a 35” straight hickory handle with swell-knob. They come with two grain-leather sheaths.

Handle Length:- 29 inches
Cutting Edge:- 6 inches

Draw knife

Broad Axe

GB4801 broad Axe £160.95 (To order only)

The pattern of the Broad Axe and the handle is based on old Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers of all kinds. Has sufficient space between the "blade’s beard" and the handle for the user’s fingers. Beveled on two sides (double beveled) or on one side, left or right. The eye (and the direction of the handle) may be straight or sideways angled, right or left, to protect the knuckles. One side beveled, left side, normally goes with an eye angled sideways to the right. If you want deeper visible cuts when squaring logs, you may even have a broad axe, double beveled, with the blade bent and the eye angled sideways to the right or to the left.
The broad axe has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle and the head weighs 3 lb. It comes with a grain-leather sheath.

Handle Length:- 20 inches
