Whoa another NEW one from Council Tool! 

5# Single bit Fallers axe with 28″ straight handle. Known as a faller’s axe, the short handle is used for close quarters work. An axe for folks that dont mess around when it comes to driving felling wedges and dropping timber!  Cutting edge is approximately 4.5″ of overall length and the poll has beveled corners to help those plastic wedges last longer. 

  • Forged steel head.Made in USA.
  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Body coated with red enamel and the cutting edges in clear lacquer to deter rust.
  • 28″ straight American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge. The serrated shape improves bite and the aluminum choice of material is strong, lightweight and does not change size with moisture content.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2″ of the overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
