You can now order 16" curved or 22" Straight Versions!
The Council Tool Camp Carver was designed with the campsite and the survivalist in mind. The Camp Carver head is hefty enough to accomplish tasks like limbing and fashioning camp tools and camp infrastructure from smaller trees and windfall. Once you have your campsite comfortable and set up the Camp Carver can keep you entertained by using it to carve anything you want! Whether that be a beautiful new spoon or a barbed spear for fishing! It has a comfortable beard on the axe for carving and making feather sticks and a hardened pole for doing things like pounding metal tent stakes and wedges! This heirloom-quality tool will quickly find its way into the books of bush-crafting legend!
Although they carry the same head - the 22" Straight handle is a completely different beast of on axe. You can still carve with the 22" version but the extra length helps increase its number of effective uses around camp. Unlike a normal straight handle, this handle has a slight curve to it that makes it much more ergonomic and comfortable in hand. Both axes are amazing on their own but they were really designed to be carried as a pair. Where one axe falls short the other length is there to step right in!

Sharpens easily, handles well (one or two hands), & balance is very good.
I haven't had a chance to use the axe yet, but it looks and feels amazing! The handle grain is straight and the head is on tight. I see no reason why this shouldn't be all it's advertised to be! The sheath feels like quality leather, so no issue there either. The company is easy to work with, the shipping is fast, the packaging is good and the free meat stick tastes great!
I will definitely be using these guys again!
A great axe for the camp site or the long back country journey. Very well balanced and a great blade profile make this a all day chop or carve axe. Looking forward to using it more now that spring is coming.
Quality product, nice packing and presentation, would buy again, CTs website is outdated, lists dozens of dealers but most don’t have any stock, WRT is buried at the bottom of the list. Highly recommend WRT. Great small business
Great Hatchet, Great people at Whiskey River Trading.
