Swedish Carving Axe
A carving axe for artistic wood sculpture, hewing bowls, wooden objects and architectural work. The curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the handle, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the thicker bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face make this axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques was developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of Swedish Carving Techniques. The handle is "rugged" to give a good grip. Available special order with left or right bevel and carved handle. The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle, the head weighs 2 lb. Comes with a full-grain leather sheath.
