This particular bit and handle pattern is modeled after the US Forest Service "Boy's Axe" - a mid-sized, pack-tool for work in tough, tough North American forests. The geometry of the head creates a broad blade-angle and the faces of the head are slightly convex. This head bites deeply without sticking too snugly and splits better for its shape and is particularly good for all around performance.
Council Tool has made several improvements on the design of this axe by lengthening the pole and ribbing the eye to increase the strength of the handle's connection to the head.
