Billhooks and axes are used because they are still the most effective tool for felling and timber reduction and conversion for some woodland activities such as coppice management. It is surprising how many blunt billhooks and axes are been used and the lack of awareness of how a sharp tool should look like and how much easier and safer work is when using a sharp tool.
The course is suitable for all who use billhooks and axes routinely and a must do course for volunteer and project leaders taking groups into woodlands.
You will learn:
- Identify different axes and patterns appropriate for use.
- Tools and devices to aid sharpening
- Different sharpening tools and techniques appropriate to use and location.
- Maintenance and storage
Participants can bring their own billhooks and axes to sharpen or practise on tools provided.
