Hands down, the most versatile axe in the woods. This masterfully crafted Saddle Axe from the pros at Council Tool gives you a perfectly packable 2-lb. head with your choice of cutting edges to lay waste to any and every cutting job you face in the woods: A 25º flat grind on the left side for cutting, shaving or carving plus a 32º flat grind on the right for notching, splitting and heavier jobs. And that versatility is combined with incredible toughness and built-to-last quality thanks to a drop-forged 5160 steel construction that’s been heat treated and tempered for superior edge retention. Even better, head’s phantom bevels reduce surface friction and bite deeper than traditional convex bladed axes plus make removal easier after a deep cut. Select 16” hickory handle stands up to tough use and lets you put the energy into the wood while keeping the size compact enough for saddle packing or backpacking use.
