Council Tool Velvicut 2lb Premium Hudson Bay Axe with Sheath. 2# Hudson Bay Premium VelvicutÂ® axe is a shape and size ideal for camping, hunting or hiking expeditions. The Hudson Bay is small enough to pack and carry yet big enough to get the job done. 2# head plus handle combines for an overall tool weight of approximately 2-3/4 lbs. The 19-inch hickory handle (before assembly) is produced from a blank selected for grain orientation and density, making it strong. Our handle pattern features a prominent grip and a slim body that allows the handle to flex a bit, improving its ergonomics. OAL length of finished tool is +-18′. A sharp axe is a safe axe as it is less likely to glance out of the cut. Be assured that this axe has been hand honed by our skilled craftsmen and is ready to use – but is shaped with enough thickness to split campfire wood. All components are MADE IN USA. Head will last a lifetime, we guarantee it. Forged from 5160 grade alloy steel. ‘Council’ is displayed on one side of the head, and the other is proudly marked ‘USA’. Bit is heat treated and quenched approximately 1′ inch from the cutting edge, then tempered for maximum edge holding and toughness. Final hardness Rc 52-56. Handle is made of grade ‘A’ American hickory and its traditional pattern embodies the heirloom quality of axes from times gone by. Forged axe head is hung in a traditional manner using a softwood wedge along with a round steel wedge for added security. Axe head is coated with light oil to prevent rusting and to showcase the exceptional Council Tool craftsmanship. A Linseed oil coating is applied to protect the handle. Premium leather sheath protects the tool and user and features a buckle for fastening, a belt slit and an embossed logo. Like its companion axe, the sheath is MADE IN USA.
