John Pickett Council founded the family business in 1886 and 130 years on, Council Tool is still known for making hand tools of strength, quality, and durability. Made with pride and expertise in North Carolina, all Council tools meet a time-tested standard.
Hudson 28" Axe
Council, the company's founder, established four core beliefs early on that continue to guide the company today:
1. Manufacture a quality product
2. Offer value by being innovative and progressive
3. Be straightforward and honest in your dealings
4. Be a good corporate citizen
In our dealings with the Council Family, we found these beliefs alive and well.
We sought a quality, durable and affordable axe, and we found it in Council. In fact, we found their whole line so irresistible, we grabbed four variations that will suit anyone from the casual camper to the seasoned feller.
Jersey Classic 36", Wood-Craft Pack 19", Hudson 28", Hudson 18"
The company is now led by the fourth generation of the Council Family. They still cut classics like the 36" Jersey, but they also innovate with tools like the Wood-Craft Pack Axe.

The Wood-Craft 19" Pack Axe is billed as a "multi-functional premium axe." It weights in at two pounds, cut from 5160 steel, and a premium 19" handle made from American Hickory.
The Hudson Bay Axes bring a strong, curved handle to the cutting game. They're both lightweight, well-balanced, and drive tent pegs with laughable ease and are equal to long bouts of chopping and splitting.
And the Jersey 36" Classic Axe is, well, the classic felling axe of the bunch. The blade has deep bevels, which shed chips and make it easy to pull the blade from the wood. It feels incredible in hand.

All Council axes have a Rockwell Hardness of 48-55 and they have great grain orientation (but the Wood-Craft sporting has the best out of the collection).
Simply put, Council is a name synonymous with quality.
