The Different Types of Axe
The Axe, commonly mispelled as "ax", has hundreds of uses. Splitting wood, clearing brush, and even using it as a wedge are some of the common uses for the tool. Take it camping, hunting, fishing, hiking, or ice climbing. The axe comes in a variety of sizes and styles each with different advantages.
The Hand Axe
The hand axe, often referred to as a "hatchet" can be made with steel, fiberglass, and/or wood. The handle traditionally was made of wood but it has become more common to create more durable and lasting handles out of fiberglass or steel. These can be used for minor brush clearing, to produce kindling, or even as a nice decoration for the empty wall of your house. Some axes/hatchets are design especially for throwing which has become a common sport among frontiersmen. See our Hand Axe selection for the many types available to you for purchase.
The Felling Axe
The felling axe is more common in taking down trees. There are two types of felling axe. The round axe is used mostly on hardwoods due to its thin tapering head and smaller shoulder. The wedge axe is used for felling soft woods. This axe, due to the wedge-like shape of the head, will not become wedged in the tree even with soft woods. This is caused by the less tapered head and larger shoulder.
