Council Tool
16" Wood-Craft Camp Carver Axe

Made in North Carolina, USA

Council Tools has been making trusted tools since 1886!

  • The Council Tool Wood-Craft Camp Carver is crafted out of our US 5160 steel with superior toughness and blade retention.  

    It’s a carver (bushcraft axe) that is made to go into the woods with you, made to get dirty while doing camp-chores.

    The Camp Carver was made to choke up, shave, and do detailed work. It features a a swept toe, flat-grind, large bit length, bearded blade, and a radius under the hammer poll for the web of the user’s hand.

    The poll is hardened and can be used like a hammer. It helps with balance of the head overall, and gives leverage when choking up.

    It has a 90 deg. spine for scraping tinder and for using a ferro-rod to start fires.

    The handle was patterned after a vintage design. It has a generous palm swell for added sense of security, a large hatchet eye to provide strength/durability, and a comfortable grip when choking up.

    The Council Tool Camp Carver is designed to be a multi-use bushcraft/camping axe, and an introduction into the world of carving and green-woodworking/sloyd.

    The design has its heritage in the larger riggers axes of North America, the bearded axes of Northern Europe, and the hatchets that are often modified into camp tools.

    It can be worn on a belt, in a hammer/hatchet holster, tucked inside or hung on the outside of a pack, with a sling, in a go-bag, or in a tool box.

    The Camp-Carver comes standard with a welted leather mask.

    The Wood-Craft Camp Carver Axe is a great tool for carvers, bushcrafters, green-woodworkers, trappers, hunters, backpackers, day-hikers, off-road bikers, campers, paddlers, tradesmen, ranchers, homesteaders, hobbyists and collectors.
