Council Tool Velvicut 2# Premium Saddle Axe


Council Tool Velvicut 2# Premium Saddle Axe

This Saddle Axe from Council Tool® is a traditional Velvicut® Premium US-made axe pattern. It's drop forged from 5160 steel which is known for its superior characteristics and blade retention. The axe is beautiful, however it was designed and manufactured for work.

This specific design is a multi-functional and packable axe pattern that received its name from being traditionally carried in a saddle bag while on horseback.  The innovative yet traditional American pattern sports phantom bevels that greatly reduce surface friction and bite deeper than many convex bladed axes. The bevels also serve for easy removal of the axe bit after a deep cut into the wood.

  • Heat treated, tempered and crafted with distinctive flat grind on each blade for maximum versatility
  • Extremely sharp 25 degree flat grind on the left blade for cutting, shaving, and carving
  • More robust 32 degree flat grind on right blade for notching, splitting and heavier jobs
  • 16" hickory handle
  • Fine leather, double bit blade cover included
  • Made in USA
