The Council Tool SU22B24C 2.25 lb. Dayton Pattern Boy's Axe is a "mid" sized general purpose tool which is appropriate for youth or smaller adults. The tapered bit makes it best used for cutting and light splitting. It is so named for the Dayton, Ohio area. The cutting edge has an approximate overall length of 3.75".

The forged tool steel Head is coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the as forged "sport utility" finish. 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 24" straight 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 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 1/4" of overall length of handle is removed during assembly. USA
