Customer Review - Council Tool 28" Velvicut® Bad Boy Axe

Customer Review - Council Tool 28

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Council Tools Bad Boy Axe

This is an axe that just does good work. Having had the less expensive red headed Boys Axe that Council makes, it just did not hold an edge after attacking Georgia hardwoods; needed to be sharpened multiple times in a days work. The Velvicut is the step above that holds a razor sharp edge and makes big chips when felling or bucking and makes easy work out of limbing and still retains the ultimate handle geometry. This is my go to axe and I have several Swedish made variants. The 2.25# head on a 28" handle is just the perfect compromise. Does big work in a not so big package. I fell with it, I buck with it, I limb with it, I process firewood; it just does well at all of that. And its still not too large to pack on a 4-5 mile hike to remote camp. I used to carry a Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe and then stepped up to the Scandi Forest Axe. The Bad Axe can do twice the work in the same amount of time as the GB Scandi Forest at the expense of 3" overall length and a pound. If I had it to do all over again and could only buy one axe, this would be it.

John Dorie's Rifle Sling on Fear the Walking Dead

April 16, 2021

If you are a fan of AMC's Fear the Walking Dead, you may have seen one of our leather products on the show and not known it...

One of the main characters, John Dorie regularly carries a sweet lever action with one of our RLO Custom Leather No-Drill Harnessed Slings on it. You see, John was a bit of a sport shooter before the zombie apocalypse hit in TX. He was a regular on the cowboy shooting circuit, as well as being a law enforcement officer. And when you are a cowboy shooter, as well as a Texan, a lever action rifle is naturally a great choice. Lever action rifles are known for their reliability and smooth action. Not to mention, your rifle and your sidearm can use the same ammo if you buy right. That means alot when ammo is scarce and you're facing hordes of the well as ...
