Product Description

The new Sheffield made axe from Wood Tools.  After a break of 30 years Sheffield is making axes again and they are better than ever before.

The head is forged from 100Cr6 bearing steel hardened and tempered to Rc58. It’s ground on one of the few last traditional water cooled grindstones still working and honed to a razor edge you can literally shave with.

The handle is made from locally sourced ash and held in place with an oak wedge cut from an old whisky barrel. It comes with a sheath either made from top quality full grain leather (our current stock is the last that was made at Clayton’s tannery at Chesterfield).

The axe was designed specifically for fine sculptural work, it excels at carving wooden spoons but it’s equally at home splitting kindling for a pizza oven, hewing boat timbers or carving joints for log cabins, or you could just hang it on the wall and admire it as a piece of art. These axes come with a lifetime guarantee though Wood Tools make them with the intention of them lasting much longer than one lifetime.
