what a thing of beauty
Ideal size and weight billhook for the harvesting of coppice material, small poles, working material up and cleaving.
Of similar size and weight to Newtown or Devon billhooks, but because the blade is a different shape the balance feels different at first, not in a bad way, just different.
Tenterden is a traditional regional pattern billhook and we are delighted Morris are still making them.
This billhook gets its name from the historic town of Tenterden on the edge of the Weald in Kent. Kent is well known for its sweet chestnut coppices but like the rest of the UK many of these coppices are not currently in management.
Like all Morris billhooks the cutting bevels are long without shoulders and ground to about 20 degrees.
The tang runs the full length of the handle, the blade is approx 230mm (9" long).
The caulked oval handle, made in varnished ash is 140mm (5 1/2") long.
Sharpen with canoe stones.
In our opinion Morris Billhooks are far better than most on the market, despite the need for some final grinding / filing and honing to removel manufacturing flats and burrs on the edge.
THIS TOOL WILL NEED GRINDING AND SHARPENING BEFORE USE.
