Felling axes: effortlessly felling trees
You use a felling axe to chop down trees. Efficiently transferring the blow and using this blow to properly cut through the wood is key. If the head of the felling axe is too thick you won’t be able to get through the wood. If it is too thin it won’t be strong enough. For this reason a good felling axe offers you the perfect balance between ergonomics and ‘cutting’ force.
