"A Badass Double Bit Axe" - Outside Magazine
This Saddle Axe is a beautiful example of a quality American made tool. The head is a solid 2lbs of drop forged 5160 steel and the haft starts with 16 inches of smooth, finished hickory, is trimmed during the hanging process to a little over 15 inches.
One side carries a 25 degree flat grind that excels at tasks such as cutting, shaving and carving, while the opposite side carries a wider 32 degree flat grind that is perfect for taking care of your heavier work such as splitting and limb-ing. To protect the razor sharp edges and your fingers, this axe ships with a leather double bit mask.
The Council Tool Saddle Axe is an innovative revival of a very classic and very functional axe pattern. The Saddle Axe is named simply because it was very easy to pack into your saddle. It took an essential and heavy tool (the axe) and made it easy to bring along an any expedition, excursion, or adventure.
