About the Council Tool Sport Utility 2.25 Boy’s Axes 24″

Council Tool 2.25# Dayton axe head outfitted with a 24″ curved hickory handle.  Popularly referred to as a “boy’s” axe.  A “mid” sized tool. 

  • Forged tool steel head.
  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least 1/2 inch back from the cutting edge.  Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from cutting edge.  The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Head coated with boiled linseed oil over the as forged finish.
  • 24″ curved American hickory handle.  Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.  
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a traditional double wedge system.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond.  Approximately 1/4″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
