After spending much time working on cattle farms and exploring the lakes of Northern Canada, Peter Buchanan-Smith saw a need for a better axe and went on to found Best Made Co.
The steeply tapered head makes these axes ideal for splitting wood and cutting along the grain.
Over 10,000 Badass Knives in Stock - We carry a huge selection of knives from the world's top brands.
Best Made Company’s dedication to craftsmanship, quality, and the idea that well-made items are meant to stand the test of time are just a few reasons we identify with their brand. The extremely sharp, thin bit allows the axe to efficiently cut across the wood’s grain with every stroke.
French fur traders first developed these axes in the 17th century while working on Hudson Bay trade routes.
The nearly straight handle combined with a head that is typically heavier than a felling axe allows the user to deliver a forceful strike without getting the axe stuck in the wood.
Balance the piece of wood that you want to split on an elevated chopping block to provide resistance to your blows.
Hold the axe with both hands – one hand secured on the grip and the other slightly below the axe’s head. Pull the axe carefully over your head and concentrate on where you wish to strike your piece of wood.
Quickly bring the axe down, allowing your top hand to slide down the axe’s handle to your other hand. The axe’s lightweight head makes it perfect for small chopping jobs and swift brush clearing. You can’t expect to fell an oak tree with one, but hatchets prove to be a reliable tool when larger axes are unavailable.
