Axe Craft, and Carving Day Course

Dates in Scotland
Dates in Sussex, England



hewing a paddle with axeusing gluts to split

The axe is an important and versatile bushcraft tool - in the right hands it can be used for felling and splitting or fine carving work. On this course you will learn how to use this tool safely for a range of tasks and how to care for and maintain your axe.

We will look at the tasks of tree felling with an axe, splitting for logs and for longer lengths with the use of "gluts" (wooden wedges). You will learn about safe grips and stances and get the chance to make a craft item with your axe such as a spoon, chopping board or even make a start on a canoe paddle!

We will also look at the safe and effective use of sheath knife and saw.

If you don't have your own axe we can sell you a Gransfors Small Forest Axe - please let us know in advance if you require this or have any questions.
