Made in the USA Sometimes referred to as a carpenter's axe or a ship builder's axe. A mid sized tool sharpened in a center-cut style (both sides of the blade beveled) making it great for chopping or notching. They started at the top with a keen forged tool steel head which is made in USA. ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and they target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as-forged condition. Then the axe head is seated onto the handle in a traditional manner using a wooden wedge crossed with a metal wedge for added security. That curved 28" handle is made from true blue American hickory. The eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening. Finally the hatchet is clear coated with lacquer to deter rust. As if all that wasn't enough, they included a premium USA-made leather sheath, just to keep that broad hatchet keen as possible and able to stow protected when not in use.
