5 lbs. Dayton pattern single bit axe with a 28 straight wooden handle.Where to Buy
5 lbs. Fallers single bit axe with a 28 in. straight wooden handle. A mid-sized felling axe for general axe chores including driving wedges. Cutting edge is approximately 5″ of overall length and the poll is square. Newly designed head has a larger poll, balanced head and wedge shaped balde with chamferred poll.
- Forged tool steel head. Made in USA.
- 5 lbs. head weight.
- 4 ¾” Bit length from toe-to-heel.
- 7 3/8” Overall head length from bit-to-poll.
- Longer poll for balance, and a larger surface area, including chamfered poll corners, so that it does not cause excessive damage while driving HDPE plastic felling wedges.
- Balanced head from front to back, with the center of mass within the eye, which reduces head-roll/blade-drop.
- Convex bevels/bit. Doubles as a decent splitting axe, using a wedge-shaped blade, with a high centerline, to help keep the axe head from sticking while splitting.
- ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
- Head coated with red enamel and cutting edge in clear lacquer to deter rust.
- 28 in. straight American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
- Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge. The serrated shape improves bite size and the aluminum choice of material is strong, lightweight and does not change size with moisture content.
- Approximately 1/2 in. of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.
