Council Tools’ most experienced artisans produce the Dayton American Felling Axe using 5160 American Steel. The Dayton pattern is a timeless shape and much preferred by skilled woodsmen for a full-sized axe. After the head is forged, much care is taken in the finishing process, with the head being rough ground in a robotic work cell, sharpened by an experienced craftsman using increasingly fine abrasives, and then finished with a leather strop to a razor’s edge. Premium leather sheath is included.

Overall weight: 5.60 lbs.
Head weight: 4 lbs.
5160 American Steel with a 32" American hickory handle.

Council Tool: Building Tools – Building Trust…Since 1886
Council Tool was founded in 1886 by John Pickett Council. Today, Council Tool is still a family owned business led by the fourth generation of the Council family with some pretty straightforward ideas about toolmaking and business. They value the people who design and manufacture their products: employees who are hardworking Americans with the skill, experience, dedication and pride necessary to produce the quality and value customers expect. John M. Council, III, fourth generation family member and current president and CEO, explains, “You’ve got to stand behind what you do. We are known as a manufacturer of quality products. Our customers will tell you that … and our competitors will tell you that.”
