Council Tool
Velvicut "Bad Axe" Boys Axe
Hand Made in the USA

Modeled after the well-known Boy's Axe of the US Forest Service, this beauty takes improved performance one step further. Like the Velvicut Hudson Bay, the axe is pierced with a special punch forming ribs horizontally and vertically inside the eye. Our unique upsetting technique creates more contact area and bite between the head to handle joint. The result? A stronger, more durable tool.

The Dayton patterned head features somewhat thicker cheeks than other axes in the marketplace. Its angle is approximately 25° but is slightly convex. This superlative design feature is preferred by many tool experts, including the US Forest Service. Its profile, in conjunction with its sharpness, provides a deep bite into wood like American hardwoods without sticking. Each axe is hand-sharpened (to fit a gauge, ensuring consistency).

Handle pattern features a prominent grip and a slim body that allows the handle to flex a bit, improving the ergonomics. Its traditional pattern embodies the heirloom quality of axes from times gone by.

The BAD AXE BOY'S AXE is a great mid-sized tool perfect for camping or to keep handy in a vehicle or at home. It's small enough to split kindling but BAD enough to chop a small tree. Beware: this well-balanced axe arrives razor sharp.
