Wood Tools Carving Axe & Leather Sheath

Wood Tools Ltd is the venture of father and daughter, the idea apparently began while Robin was teaching spoon carving courses. Robin grew frustrated by the lack of a perfect carving axe to recommend to beginners. So he set out to get his own made. With 25 years of using, forging and teaching tools he knew exactly what he needed but it had to work for everyone. That’s where Jo came in, his 17 year old daughter was a budding spoon carver, well versed in the theory but lacking the physical strength to wield larger axes. Robin knew if he could find an axe that worked for both of them then it would suit most people.
Now six years on they are the perfect father  and daughter tool design team, making tools that give years of trusted use, becoming the valued antiques of the next generation.

The Robin Wood Carving Axe is a razor sharp axe that will do anything from felling small trees to splitting firewood.
Where it really excels is as a carving axe. For many years there has not been a good carving axe available that came sharp and ready to use for less than £80. This axe changes things. 
The axe heads are drop forged abroad then ground and honed by Brian Alcock, the last professional grinder in Sheffield. 
The hickory handles are made in the UK and have a knurled finish for grip and are treated with linseed oil. 


They also make a great axe for kindling splitting, bushcraft or camp use.The weight of the head is 550g and the total weight around 720g (1lb 9oz), handle length is 12.5″ (31cm). 
This is a good mid-weight carving axe that most people will use easily without getting tired, yet still heavy enough to remove wood quickly.


Each Carving axe comes supplied with a top quality leather sheath made from full grain leather which has been veg tanned and dyed especially by Clayton’s of Chesterfield. The sheaths are made with strong rivets and brass press studs. They are a snug fit and will keep the sharp edge of your axe safe for many years.
