Velvicut® Premium Axes from Council Tool.  Seasoned, experienced craftsmen combine 127 years of tool making know-how, modern techniques, and excellent materials.  Premium axes are drop forged from alloy steel for strength and toughness. Heads are rough ground and profiled in a robotic work cell. Bits are quenched and tempered for superior edge holding. Bit sharpening is by hand with increasingly fine grit abrasives and finished with leather.  Custom handles, selected for grain orientation and density, are grade “A” American hickory.  Axe heads are lightly oiled and left unpainted to showcase the natural steel beauty.

These top-of-the-line, world class axes are made for the serious user, collector, outdoorsman, or tool aficionado.  They are not for everyone but rather for those who seek the very best.
