Product Description

A standard weight carving axe retaining a relatively compact design but with a broader curved edge for slicy cuts.

This carving axe has a 120mm - 125mm (5'') edge - SYMMETRICAL grind only for this axe (also known as double grind).

The head weight is approximately 625g. If striking the poll, do so with a wooden mallet (not a steel hammer)

The handle - hand carved 300mm - 320mm long (12'' - 12 3/4'''), faceted, kin dried ash handle.

The leather cover is made by Oscar using Italian leather with solid brass rivets (these are much stronger than cap rivets).

Please note each of these tools are forged, ground and handled by hand which makes each of these beautifully functional edge tools unique.  

There will be slight variations between each tool which is part of their beauty but the crucial curves and alignment are consistent for each tool.

Proudly made in Suffolk, UK.

These tools are made in small batches by artisan blacksmith Oscar Rush who will be joining Classic Hand Tools at a couple of our shows this summer/autumn.

If you miss out on a batch, please email sales@classichandtools.com and we will advise when the next batch is due (we anticipate 4 batches per annum).

We also anticipate world wide demand for these side azes and Oscar's other hand forged tools.

Apart from carving axes, side axes and small hand adzes, Classic Hand Tools have commissioned Oscar to make some other fine edge tools which will make their appearances later on in the year.
