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!

Council Tool Camp Carver

Fantastic fit and finish. Perfect grain pattern and alignment. I seriously advocate for both Whiskey River and Council Tool for their thorough and professional business practices.

22 inch vs 16 inch

I just got done changing the handle on my Camp Carver from the 16 inch to the 22 inch handle.
Wow what a difference, for me it is much more comfortable. The 22 inch handle is a thinner taller oval than the 16 inch. And I find it a much better fit for my hand and it feels better balanced to me. And the taller oval is going to give much better control.


A tool that will last many years, and best of all made in USA!
