Different models of double-bit axes have been popular in the US since the last quarter of the 19th century because of its balanced feel and versatility. Typically, one blade was sharpened to a finely honed, narrow "felling edge", while the second blade was ground slightly blunter, and used for knots and cutting near the ground where a finely sharpened blade was more likely to be damaged. Today the double-bit axe is used as a Working/Felling Axe or as a Throwing Axe for timber sports. The head weighs 3 lb. and the face of the bits are about 6". The Throwing Axe has a 29" straight hickory handle and the Working/Felling Axe has a 35" straight hickory handle with swell-knob. They come with two grain-leather sheaths.

The Double bit Throwing axe is specifically designed and weighted for competition throwing. Both edges are identical and the center of gravity and handle are carefully positioned so that the axe rotates well in flight. Includes a grain leather sheath.
