How to Use an Axe

Axes come in a variety of sizes and serve many different purposes. A forest axe (also known as a range axe) is used to cut or split large pieces of wood and requires both hands to use. A hatchet, or hand axe, is appropriate for cutting dead branches, twigs, and firewood, and can be used with one hand. Axes can help with numerous tasks, including log-building and meat cleaving, and it’s important to know how and when to use different types of axes!

Hold the axe tightly. Your body should be loose and relaxed, while your hands need to firmly grip the axe itself. Make sure your hands are a few inches apart on the axe handle before you start chopping.

 

  • Grab the axe by placing your non-dominant hand 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 cm) above the end of the axe handle.
  • Position your other hand approximately 25% down the handle below the blade of the axe.
  • If you are right-handed, your right hand should be the one closest to the blade. If you are left-handed, the opposite is true.

This Tomahawk axes originate from North America, where they were first used by Native Americans. They have a rich military history and have been used in battle since their creation, by both sides in the American Revolution, and later in the Vietnam War. These axes resemble hatchets, and the sharp blade makes them useful for a range of jobs, including digging, prying, chopping, and splitting. Though tomahawks are popular among soldiers, they have more recently become fashionable for camping. They are lighter and smaller than hatchets and are therefore easier to carry around. They are multi functional, able to be used for a range of bushcraft activities. Tomahawks are also popular for use in knife throwing competitions, where they have their own category.

Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on March 3, 2023 Verified Purchase : Perfect for what it’s used for, and absolutely beautifully crafted! A sword doesn’t need to need 10000$ to be good, this is a great pice of hardware. It’s worth more than the price. Haven’t had it slip or ring like cheap steel, especially when filing with.
