3.75 lbs. Pulaski axe with 36 in. hickory handle. Thought to have been developed in the early 1900s by Edward Pulaski, a legendary Forest Service Ranger in Idaho. It is said that in August 1910, his presence saved the lives of 45 men during a difficult time in a large fire. 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.

  • Forged from 1060 steel. Made in the USA.
  • Hand-sharpened, single-bit edge and mattock blade.
  • ANSI Standards call for a bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55.
  • The body is coated with red enamel and the cutting edges in clear lacquer to deter rust.
  • 36 in. double-bit American hickory handle. The eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.
  • The axe head is hydraulically seated onto the 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.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/2 in. of the handle's overall length is removed during assembly. OAL is nominal.
