Broad Axe – Ox-Head

Broad Axe – Ox-Head Broad axes are used for squaring and shaping logs and timbers. These broad axes use the Lower Bavarian Pattern and are particularly well suited to squaring timbers. The flat-sided head is chisel-sharpened with a single bevel, which makes flattening the side of a log as easy as it gets. The right hand model has the flat face on the left hand side of the axe so that you can chop flush on the right side of the workpiece. Has American hickory handle which is bent slightly so it will not interfere with your work.

The head is 2.2 lb with a 5-1/2" cutting edge and the handle is 15-3/4" long.
