All Council axe heads are drop forged from high quality tool steel. The forging is then processed in an abrasive robotic work cell where the trim lines are removed, the shape refined and the cutting edges are ground, which yields highly consistent heads. Cutting edges are then heat treated and tempered. 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. The final sharpening of the cutting edge is by hand using fine grit abrasives. Care is taken to not affect the tempered hardness of the bit. Heads are either painted or lacquered to deter rust and all polished surfaces are lacquered or oiled.

Fire Axe Inc.

The Fire Axe, Inc. Firefighter Axe is the first choice of the LAFD. The famed Collins Tool Seagrave Axe was carried by Los Angeles City Firemen in the early 1900s. It was a great firefighting tool in its day, and still highly prized - if you can find one. When LAFD firefighter, Jason Knight, the founder of Fire Axe, Inc., discovered they hadn't been made since 1925, and the original dies were long gone. He decided to make his own-and make it even better-improving both its legendary effectiveness and its durability. It was heartily adopted by the LAFD as their current primary fire axe.

Woodman’s Pal®We are proud to introduce the Woodman’s pal Brush Axe. An old school, timeless design re-engineered, this unique tool features a tough, high carbon steel cutting blade bearing a convex radius cutting blade whose design penetrates the thickest brush, saplings and debris with ease. The special concave shaped bill hook design at the front end of the tool captures stubborn vines and undergrowth in the “hook” for quick cutting and slicing. We’ve added a safety “tail” to the rear bottom of the blade which serves to retain cut materials in front of the handle and away from the user.
