Council Tool 35-2MR 3 5 lb  Michigan Pattern Double Bit Axe + Enlarge Image

Council Tool 35-2MR 3.5 lb. Michigan Pattern Double Bit Axe, 36" Straight Handle

Item #: 1540271
Includes Free Shipping

The Council Tool #35-2MR 3.5 lb. Michigan Pattern Double Bit Axe is designed to give two options for use. Sometimes sharpened in different ways, one end is typically thinner and sharper and used for knot-free cutting; and the other end is usually thicker and blunter for use when knots are present or to cut near the ground where contact with dirt was likely.

The forged tool steel Head is coated with red enamel and cutting edges in clear lacquer to deter rust. ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least 1/2 inches back from the cutting edge, while Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and they target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge.

The Axe comes with a straight 36" double-bit American hickory handle. The eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening, and then the 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 overall length of handle is removed during assembly. USA
