  • The new  Sport utility series from Council Tool.  This series has improvements over the red head axes.  The Sport utility upgrades the wedge from the sometimes problematic aluminum wedge to a wooden wedge with round metal wedge.  The head is not ground after forging or heat treat, so has a rough finish and color left from heat treating.   The series also has greatly improved factory sharpening compared to the red head series.     

  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting.

  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.

  • Head coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the as forged finish.

  • 28″ curved American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.  Hafted high and proud.

  • Axe 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 the handle is removed during assembly.

  • Sheath not included.
