Council Tool Velvicut Bad Boy's Axe - 28 Inch Handle + Enlarge Image

Council Tool Velvicut Bad Boy's Axe - 28" Handle

Item #: 1264898

The "Bad Axe Boy's Axe" is a great mid-sized tool perfect for camping or to keep handy in a vehicle or at home. It's small enough to split kindling but "bad" enough to chop a small tree. Beware: this well-balanced axe arrives razor sharp!

Modeled after the well-known "Boy's Axe" of the US Forest Service, this beauty takes improved performance one step further. Like the Velvicut® Hudson Bay, the axe is pierced with a special punch forming ribs horizontally and vertically inside the eye. This unique upsetting technique creates more contact area and "bite" between the head to handle joint. The result? A stronger, more durable tool.

Forged using 5160 grade alloy steel, the 2.25 lb. Dayton patterned head features somewhat thicker cheeks than other axes in the marketplace. Its angle is approximately 25° but is slightly convex. This superlative design feature is preferred by many tool experts, including the US Forest Service. Its profile, in conjunction with its sharpness, provides a deep bite into wood - like American hardwoods - without sticking. Each axe is hand-sharpened to fit a gauge, ensuring consistency.

The axe bit is heat treated and quenched approximately 1" inch from the cutting edge, then tempered for maximum edge holding and toughness. The final hardness of the bit is Rc 52-56.

The 28" long handle (before assembly) is made of grade "A" American hickory and selected for grain orientation and density, making it strong. The handle is mounted to the head in the traditional manner using a softwood wedge along with a round steel wedge for added security.

Handle pattern features a prominent grip and a slim body that allows the handle to flex a bit, improving the ergonomics. Its traditional pattern embodies the heirloom quality of axes from times gone by. A premium leather sheath protects the tool and user and features a buckle for fastening, a belt slit and an embossed logo.

The axe has an overall weight of approximately 3.5 lbs. Both the axe and the sheath are Made In The USA.
