The Council Tool #SU20HB28C 2 lb. Hudson Bay Axe is a one-handed camp axe best suited for light splitting, chopping, driving tent pegs, etc. The pattern is thought to have originated from "Biscayan" in Northern Spain, near France. French traders used this hand axe as a trade tool in their dealings with Native Americans for fur and other commodities in the Hudson Bay area, St. Lawrence River, and other trade routes.

The forged tool steel Head is coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the as forged finish. Hafted high and proud. 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 poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.

The Axe comes with a 28" curved 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 traditional double wedge system. The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/4" of overall length of handle is removed during assembly. USA
