Product Description

The Robin Wood axe is the perfect axe for someone starting carving work or for teachers who want a set of ten for courses. For many years there has not been a good axe available that came sharp and ready to use for less than £70, these axes work really very well indeed. The heads are drop forged abroad but ground and honed by Brian Alcock the last professional grinder in Sheffield. I have the hickory handles made in the UK to my design they have a good grippy knurled finish and are treated with linseed oil. They also make a great axe for  bushcraft or camp use. The weight of the head is 500g and the total weight 760g (1lb 11oz), handle length is 13.5″ (34cm). This is a good weight and size of axe that I find most folk can use easily without getting tired but is still heavy enough to remove wood quickly.

Sorry folks these are now out of stock until the next batch are ready hopefully early March 2015.

    I was going to buy a gransfors axe and read the review of axes on the robin wood blog which mentioned this axe at the end. At £35 it was worth a look! I ordered late Tuesday and the axe arrived early Wednesday. Straight to the workshop to test and it looks and feels superb, razor sharp and a really nice balanced feel. It will be out in the woods this weekend too but I am pretty sure I do not need to buy a small gransfors axe now. But maybe one of the bigger ones?
    Fantastic product and great service, thank you very much.

    Bought this as a small, light alternative to my other axes that I’d be comfortable taking out of the workshop and using and abusing carving in the field. However, it’s quickly become my go to axe. The dimensions are spot on and it just feels right in the hand.

    I used the gransfors carving axe as my main axe, but the weight can be a little taxing at times. The price of this axe made me a little weary, but after using it, I would recommend this axe to anyone. Comes out of the box sharp and is a perfect all around weight. I absolutely love it. After only using it a few times, I know that it will soon be my new favorite tool. Bottom line – Perfect axe for an even more perfect price.

    Just as the description says, a great wee axe, I didnt want to spend too much money on a axe until my sharpening skills are good enough but now I wont need to because this axe is good enough, a real bargain for once.
