Axes, Hatchets, Mauls, Picks and Mattocks

  • Single-bit axes should never be struck by another striking tool.
  • Axe heads for single bit axes should never be used to strike splitting wedges, steel posts, stone or any hard object.
  • Safety glasses should be worn when using these tools. In addition to possible chipping of the tool, flying wood chips could strike the eye of the user or someone nearby.
  • The striking face of a hatchet is intended for pounding nothing harder than common nails. It should never be struck with another hatchet or a hammer and should not be used to strike chisels, punches, star drills or other hardened metal.
  • Never use an axe or a hatchet with a handle that is loose or damaged.
  • Discard any axe or hatchet if the head is cracked or chipped.
  • If the handle is damaged, it most likely can be replaced.
  • When redressing the cutting edge, always restore to its original shape.
