A Hand Axe has a long history and has been used in the outdoors for thousands of years. It is a strong, versatile item that you must have in your garden whether you are dealing with some tough undergrowth, splitting wood, or chopping back trees.
A Hand Axe is a small and very useful tool that is mainly used for cutting, shaping, or splitting. We carry a large range of high-quality Hand Axe UK, and you can be sure to find one that fits your needs. Many of our axes have a fibreglass handle that is lightweight, hollowed, and ergonomically friendly.
These axes come with a steel blade that has been tempered and hardened to increase strength. It provides the Hand Axe with an ideal combination of increased balance, strength, and durability. It is also designed to be lightweight with a short handle so that it is easier for the wielder to handle.
Making a Choice
When choosing a Garden Axe, there are a few important things you need to consider. You want to ideally be able to use it with one hand, so it should be lightweight and ergonomically friendly.
For the enthusiastic gardener, you want to decide whether you would be using the Hand Axe more for cutting difficult growth & trees or splitting wood.
The blade of a Hand Axe better suited for cutting is thinner as the power is in the first point of contact. For splitting, you need to separate the wood in two pieces, so the blade is wider and more ‘wedge’ shaped.
A Hand Axe has been a tool that has been evolutionarily passed down through generations. It certainly looks and feels better than the axes borne by our forefathers and it is still a must-have item for your outdoor needs.
