Muller Felling Axe

A felling axe is a type of axe that is specifically designed for cutting down trees or other large pieces of wood. It typically has a long handle, usually around 71cm to 91cm (28-36 inches) inches in length, which allows for greater leverage and control when swinging the axe.

The head of a felling axe is typically wider and heavier than that of other types of axes, such as a splitting axe or a carpenter's axe. The cutting edge of a felling axe is usually between 3 and 6 inches long and is sharpened to a thin, wedge-like shape to allow for deep cuts into the wood.

Felling axes are commonly used by lumberjacks, foresters, and other professionals who need to fell trees quickly and efficiently. They can also be used for chopping firewood, clearing brush, and other outdoor activities. Felling axes are typically made from high-carbon steel, which provides a strong and durable blade that can withstand heavy use.


Sharpening an axe involves several steps to ensure that the blade is properly sharpened and balanced. Here is a general guide to sharpening an axe:

  1. Secure the axe: Begin by securing the axe in a vise or clamp, or by placing it on a flat surface with the head hanging off the edge.
  2. Remove nicks and chips: If the blade has any nicks or chips, use a coarse file to remove them. Use a smooth, even motion and work from the base of the blade to the tip. Be sure to maintain the original bevel angle of the blade.
  3. Sharpen the edge: Once any nicks or chips are removed, use a sharpening stone to sharpen the edge of the blade. Use a honing oil or water to lubricate the stone and prevent the blade from overheating. Hold the blade at the same angle as the original bevel and work the stone along the edge of the blade in a circular motion, starting at the base and working towards the tip. Repeat this process on the other side of the blade.
  4. Finish the edge: Once the edge is sharpened, use a finer grit stone or a leather strop with honing compound to refine the edge and remove any burrs. This will help to create a razor-sharp edge on the blade.
  5. Check the balance: Finally, check the balance of the axe by holding it by the handle and letting it hang vertically. The blade should hang straight down without tilting to one side. If it is unbalanced, use a file or grinding wheel to remove material from the heavier side of the blade until it is balanced.

Remember to always wear safety gear, such as gloves and eye protection, when sharpening an axe. It is also important to follow the manufacturer's instructions and to maintain the original bevel angle of the blade to ensure optimal performance.
