The Robin Wood axe


Category: . Tags: , .

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.

    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.
