Council Tool Pulaski Axe (3.75 lbs) with 36" Hickory Handle
3.75# Pulaski axe with 36" hickory handle. A traditional style bit axe blade on one end and a mattock blade for digging or grubbing on the other end. Used in a variety of settings including forestry and general landscaping. This tool has gotten thousands of firefighters out of tough situations. They start off with a USA made forged steel head. While ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of RC 45-60, Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of RC 48-55. The single bit edge and mattock then is hand sharpened. Axe head then is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a serrated aluminum wedge. The serrated shape improves bite and the aluminum choice of material is strong, lightweight and does not change size with moisture content. 36" double bit American hickory handle has an eye section that is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening. The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2" of the overall length of the handle is removed during assembly. The body is coated with red enamel and the cutting edges in clear lacquer to deter rust.
