NOTE: This is for the sling only, axe and sheath sold separately
Council Tool Recently moved away from the black leather for the Wood-Craft line, and upgraded the leather for the Velvicut line, they now use a deep brown color leather to keep some consistency across the premium lines.
This also allowed us to upgrade from the black synthetic biothane strap, to a matching leather strap material for the slings.
The Velcro cuff that used to be on the sling was replaced with incremental slits cut into the sling. This allows the end-user to pick the appropriate length, that allow the handle to pass through any of slits in the sling. The sling can then be used on any length hatchet or axe, with out having to move the Velcro cuff.
This new design has a cleaner look, with less moving parts.
