2lb Double Bit Saddle Axe – Sport Utility Finish with 16″ American Hickory Handle
Sport Utility Saddle Axe from Council Tool Co. is a traditional US Made Axe pattern. Drop forged from 1060 steel. This axe is beautiful, however it was designed and manufactured for work. It has been heat treated, tempered and crafted with hand sharpened blades for maximum versatility.
This specific design is a multifunctional and packable axe pattern that received its name from being traditionally carried in a saddle bag while on horseback. The innovative yet traditional American pattern sports phantom bevels that greatly reduce surface friction and bite deeper than many convex bladed axes and the bevels also serve for easy removal of the axe bit after a deep cut into the wood.
The highly versatile Saddle Axe design has thinner left blade for cutting, shaving, and carving and a more robust right blade for notching, splitting and heavier jobs. All combine to make a very well designed, versatile and useful axe.
