Product Description

28" Sport Utility Boys Axe


The Sport Utility Axes are the best value on the market for a working axe! Nice thin handles, good quality steel and a nice working edge.


2.25 lb. Dayton axe head outfitted with a 28″ curved hickory handle. Popularly referred to as a “boy’s” axe. A “mid” sized tool. Dayton pattern originated from the Dayton, Ohio, area.

  • Forged tool steel head. Made in USA.
  • Hand sharpened, tapered bit for cutting and light splitting.
  • ANSI Standards call for bit hardness of Rc 45-60, at least ½ inch back from the cutting edge. Council Tool internal standards call for tempered bit hardness of Rc 48-55 and we target 1-1/4 inches from the cutting edge. The poll and eye walls are not hardened and remain in the as forged condition.
  • Head coated with boiled Linseed Oil over the as forged finish.
  • 24″ curved American hickory handle. Eye section is dried to below 10% moisture content to minimize shrinkage and help prevent loosening.  Hafted high and proud.
  • Axe head is hydraulically seated onto handle and secured with a traditional double wedge system.
  • The interior detail of the eye is tapered and allows for a strong mechanical bond. Approximately 1/4″ of overall length of the handle is removed during assembly.

  1. Larger duty axe for a great price. 5 Star Review

    Contacted Ben's Backwoods for a heavier packable axe for cutting trail, colder weather and base camp.
    Discussed the available options and decided on the 28" for heavier use when necessary. Great choice.
    Great discussion from a bushcraft expert.
    BB is my first choice for camping needs.
