Wood-Craft Camp Carver,1.7# 16″ Curved Handle, Mask

1.7# Wood-Craft Camp Carver, 16″ Curved Handle, with a high quality Leather Mask:  The Council Tool Co.’s WOOD-CRAFT  Camp Carver is designed to be a multi-use bushcraft/camping axe, and a carving axe for fine woodworking.

The design has its heritage in the larger riggers axes of North America, the bearded axes of Northern Europe.  It’s a carver (bushcraft axe) that you don’t have to worry about bringing into the woods with you, or letting it get dirty while doing camp-chores.

With a swept toe, flat-grind, large bit length, bearded blade, and a radius under the hammer poll for the web of the user’s hand, it was made to choke up, shave, and do detailed work.

The poll is hardened and can be used like a hammer. It helps with balance of the head overall, and gives leverage when choking up.  It has a 90 deg. spine for scraping tinder and for using a ferro-rod to start fires in a pinch, or just for fun.

The handle was patterned after a vintage design. It has a generous palm swell for added sense of security, a large hatchet eye to provide strength/durability, and a comfortable grip when choking up.

The Wood-Craft Camp Carver will be a good tool for carvers, bushcrafters, green-woodworkers, trappers, hunters, backpackers, day-hikers, off-road bikers, campers, paddlers, tradesmen, ranchers, homesteaders, hobbyists and collectors.

The Wood-Craft Camp Carver can be worn on a belt, in a hammer/hatchet holster, in or on a pack, with a sling, in a go-bag, or in a tool box.
