Tough Billhook Axe

The Billhook's claim to fame is whacking through small to medium diameter brushy branches or cutting roots. While there’s certainly nothing fancy about it, it’s tough and overbuilt to meet your outdoor maintenance needs. Learn more about why Garrett Wade recommends this axe to anyone who spends time bushwacking and landscaping their property!

Long Billhook Details

The Billhook was thoughtfully designed to ensure it’s easy and convenient to use. With an oiled ash handle, you get maximum comfort and durability, while a hole at the south end of the shaft allows for off-ground storage when it’s not in use. The overall length of the axe is 15” with a blade measuring 9-1/2” long and 4-1/2” at its widest point.

We love this axe because it delivers quality, durability, and precision engineering all in one tool. Made in Germany by a third-generation family business, you can trust in our tough Billhook axe to get the job done.

Goes great with the Short Chopper Axe by Garrett Wade.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Maker

We wanted to share with you an inside look at a 4th generation family business that makes some of our best garden digging tools and most of our axes, hatchets, and clearing tools. 

It’s located in Germany near Heidelberg, not far from the Rhine River. The factory and forge are run by Tobias runs with his wife Dovile. In my 30+ years of being in the tool business, I’ve learned the exceptional people are those who always have an eye out for quality and can easily discuss both the use of the tools, the process of making them, as well as the craftsman who work for them. Tobias fit that mark perfectly – it’s in his blood. 

From the Hickory handles sourced in the USA to the forges powered by wood waste the details are considered.
