US Double Bit Felling Axe


Regular price£185.99
Few axes are more iconic than the American ‘Double Bit’. Double bit felling axes spread across America during the 19th century when the logging industry was still reliant on axes for felling trees.  One bit was used for heavy work that was prone to dull the blade, while the other had a finely-honed edge and kept in reserve for fine cutting.

The Double Bit has as straight handle and symmetrical head, offering a comfortable balance for the wielder. Comes with a full head heavy duty top grain American cowhide leather sheath.
