Ship Builders Axe

A shipwright's tool, the ship builder's axe came in a variety of shapes and sizes. The shape of the blade depended on the function of the axe. The edge of the blade was either straight or curved, most being curved; The angle of the blade also varied depending on whether hard or softer wood was to be cut. A thinner blade was required for the hardest woods. Ours also has a hammer poll as did many of the originals.

The head is 4 inches along the cutting edge and 6 inches long across the top of the blade.


  • This axe uses our large, 19 inch long handle.
  • The weight of the head is about 1.5 lbs.
  • The overall weight with the handle is about 2.0 lbs.

Blade Cover NOT Included.
