——Jun 25, 2018How to sharpen axe?

A sharp axe is a safe axe. Dull axes not only make your work harder they can glance off the wood and cause serious injury. How to sharpen axe?

Tools needed to sharpen an axe are a file, a honing stone, and a strop. A flat, mill bastard file should be used if your axe is extremely dull. After using the file (if needed) finish with a flat or puck style medium and then fine hone. Use a leather strop to complete sharpening your axe.

When sharpening your axe be mindful of the bevel or angle at the bit end. An axe is not a straight consistent wedge. The angle of thickness is different as you move up the axe bit. Most axes have a 30-40 degree angle at the end of the bit and a 15-20 degree angle about ½” from the cutting edge. The bulge away from the end of the bit is what provides the axe its splitting power.

Never sharpen your axe on a bench grinder as the heat generated by the wheel can cause the axe to lose its temper.
