Roughneck Axe Fibreglass Handle 1.1/4lb 370mm


The Roughneck Axe with a fibreglass handle is a versatile and durable tool designed for chopping and splitting wood. Here are some key features and details about this axe:

Head Weight: The head of the axe weighs 1.1/4 pounds, making it suitable for a variety of cutting and chopping tasks, including splitting small logs, cutting branches, and shaping wood.

Blade Material: The blade of the axe is typically made of high-quality carbon steel or hardened steel. This material is durable and holds a sharp edge well, ensuring efficient cutting performance over time.

Blade Design: The blade of the axe features a sharp cutting edge and a wedge-shaped profile, allowing it to bite into wood easily and split it cleanly along the grain. The blade may also have a beveled or convex shape to help prevent sticking and binding during use.

Handle Material: The handle of the axe is made of fibreglass, which is lightweight, durable, and resistant to impact and weathering. Fibreglass handles are also less prone to splintering or breaking compared to wooden handles, making them ideal for heavy-duty use.

Handle Length: The overall length of the axe, including the handle, is 370mm (approximately 14.5 inches). This length provides leverage and control, allowing you to generate sufficient force when swinging the axe for chopping and splitting wood.

Handle Design: The fibreglass handle is ergonomically designed for comfort and ease of use during extended periods of chopping. It may feature a non-slip grip or textured surface to improve control and reduce hand fatigue.

Shock Absorption: Fibreglass handles offer excellent shock absorption properties, helping to reduce the impact and vibration transferred to the user’s hands during use. This makes the axe more comfortable to use and reduces the risk of hand and wrist injuries.

Maintenance: Like all cutting tools, the axe requires regular maintenance to ensure optimal performance and longevity. This may include sharpening the blade periodically to maintain its cutting edge, oiling the blade to prevent rust and corrosion, and inspecting the handle for any signs of damage or wear.

Overall, the Roughneck Axe with a fibreglass handle is a reliable and efficient tool for chopping and splitting wood. Whether you’re preparing firewood, clearing branches, or tackling DIY projects, this axe offers the durability, strength, and performance needed to get the job done effectively.

Excellent top soil. The ladies in the office were first class and the delivery driver was so helpful and tipped the soil exactly where I wanted it even though it was very tight to get the tipper into my driveway a lot of shunting back and forth to turn it to get in position first class service highly recommended.

I was let down by several companies when overhauling my garden this year so when I came to arranging the new lawn I was very concerned in case I had another bad contractor but.. I have to say Andrew and the team did an amazing job of supplying and installing a huge amount of soil for my lawn and embankment as well as laying around 220 square meters of good quality lawn. On top of that he sorted my gravel out as well, amazing service, great friendly team, good fair prices and did exactly what he said he would do. Aftercare is also top notch. Thanks to all the team at South Wales Turf & Topsoil
