When choosing an ax, you have to focus on the main purpose for which it is purchased. If you need a compact and precise tool, then the choice most often falls on a small ax. This tool may vary; its varieties are classified according to the following parameters:
- Blade shape.
- The way the blade fits onto the handle.
What types of small axes are there?
The heavier the tool, the more difficult it is to work with. Therefore, it is imperative to select a suitable variety taking into account the build and physical conditions of the future user. A small household ax with a wooden handle is the most common option. It usually has a sharp blade sharpened in a straight line. A good small ax for carpentry will have a semi-circle ground blade, but will also have a sharp angle of 20 to 30 degrees. A tool with a sharpening angle of less than 20 or equal to 20 degrees is considered to be a household tool for its intended purpose. And an angle of more than 30 degrees is used where a cleaver is needed.
If the ax is small, then it can hardly be used as a cleaver. It is worth buying a small ax made of good steel to use it as a universal tool for small jobs. Typically, such an instrument is taken on hiking trips, especially in conditions where it is not possible to take a large instrument when there is a shortage of space and a full load.
Small survival axes are often purchased for use on a long hike.As a rule, they have several functions and can be folded and even disassembled if necessary for safe and convenient transportation. Sometimes additional tools are placed in the hollow handle.
Ax handles for small axes, unlike similar parts of their larger counterparts, are often made of steel. For ease of use, their handles are covered with a layer of wear-resistant rubber. The blades are sharpened very sharply, since on a hike they often replace knives as well. But a small ax with a long wooden handle is also still in demand.
