Title

Broad Axe

Description

A broad axe is a wood shaping tool. One would use it to get a log flat or square a log off. One side of the axe head is beveled, and the other side is flat (shown). The wooden handle curves away from the flat side to give the tool user's hands room when cutting straight wood.
