Swedish carving axe
A chopping and carving axe, based on a traditional Swedish design, that
is well-suited for roughing large artistic carvings, hewing bowls and suchlike,
and for architectural work. The cutting edge has a characteristic curved
shape and is carried well above the head's eye. The position of the edge
relative to the handle, the rather thick bit, and the big angle of the wide
beveled face make the Swedish carving axe a good carving tool.
