The Camp Carver is designed to be a multi-use bushcraft/camping axe, and a “gateway drug” into the world of carving and green-woodworking/sloyd.
The design has its heritage in the larger riggers axes of North America, the bearded axes of Northern Europe, and the hatchets that are often modified into camp tools.
It’s a carver (bushcraft axe) that you don’t have to feel bad about bringing into the woods with you, or letting it get dirty while doing camp-chores.
With a swept toe, flat-grind, large bit length, bearded blade, and a radius under the hammer poll for the web of the user’s hand, it was made to choke up, shave, and do detailed work.
The poll is hardened and can be used like a hammer. It helps with balance of the head overall, and gives leverage when choking up.
It has a 90 deg. spine for scraping tinder and for using a ferro-rod to start fires.
The handle was patterned after a vintage design. It has a generous palm swell for added sense of security, a large hatchet eye to provide strength/durability, and a comfortable grip when choking up.
This axe will compete directly with many other axes in this popular weight class.
The axe will be a good tool for carvers, bushcrafters, green-woodworkers, trappers, hunters, backpackers, day-hikers, off-road bikers, campers, paddlers, tradesmen, ranchers, homesteaders, hobbyists and collectors.
It can be worn on a belt, in a hammer/hatchet holster, tucked inside or hung on the outside of a pack, with a sling, in a go-bag, or in a tool box.

Wood-Craft Pack Camp Carver Axe
Fit and finish is absolutely flawless, came razor sharp out of the box. Perfect size and weight for camp chores.Don’t let the small size fool you- this thing packs a heck of a punch! Very proud to own one, and will be adding the 24” to the family very soon!! (I’ll just pull the ol, “who put that there?”, When the wife sees it) Thank you guys for the fast shipping!!
Overall, this is a very good small axe. If any complaint, it's the 90 degree (edged) spine isn't that sharp. it's good enough to scrape material, but not the best for ferro rod. The only portion that's edged enough is near the poll, and it works very well!
It is a good axe for light wood working and old style !
