Council Tool® is pleased to re-introduce a line of premium axes called Velvicut®. This name was trademarked many years ago when an axe was part of the work day. When sharpness, the ability to hold an edge and the feel of the tool made the day shorter - or longer, based on performance. With Velvicut® their commitment is to combine decades of axe making with modern manufacturing techniques and excellent materials to produce a line of axes for those who want the best. Velvicut® axe heads are patterned and styled with features that allow the axe to perform in an exceptional manner. The big things like material, shape and balance are certainly important but the little things - the slight taper here, the thinning of the cheek there, make the axe more pleasurable to use. As with all their products they are Made in USA.
