The Council Tool Velvicut® Hudson Bay Axe with 24" handle is the ideal shape and size for camping, hunting, trail clearing and general survival or bushcraft. Not too heavy or long to carry and just the right size for building shelter, clearing a trail, making kindling and feeding the campfire. Crafted from 5160 alloy steel, heads are drop-forged at around 2000° Fahrenheit, producing refined grain flow in the steel of the head and greatly enhancing strength. Proper heat treating, shot blasting the heads, touching with different abrasives, joining American hickory handle to head and sharpening all come together to create the Velvicut® Axe. Each is a unique work of art and the best Council can make. Premium leather sheath included.

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.”
