Soulwood Carving Axe #3 (trimmed wedge)

Regular price £235.00 Sale

This carving axe was designed with ergonomics and functionality in mind. The traditional bearded head profile, and the faceted re-curved handle makes it an ideal carving axe. Hand forged from a solid piece of spring steel by Szabo Andras a blacksmith in Hungary with more than 30 years of experience in the craft.

The #3 Axe has a heavier head and a longer cutting edge than the #1. This axe was born in a hope that the extra weight allows for faster stock removal but the balance of the axe still allows for very precise axe work.

Features a faceted hand carved English ash handle. The facets improves the grip on the axe, which means you can use your axe longer without getting blisters or fatiguing your hand.

The symmetrical 30 degree flat grind is an ideal choice for cutting performance but robust enough to maintain a sharp edge for a longer period of time.

The hand stitched thick vegetable tanned leather sheath is custom made for each axe, so they fit perfectly and protect the razor sharp edge. To make this axe stand out I have added some stamp work to the sheath.

The wedge on this axe has been trimmed flush to the top of the handle.
