Strangling your axe

When it comes to fine work with an axe such as carving, it’s important to have complete control over the tool.  This is likely to mean that you’ll be strangling your axe, also called choking your axe.

Watch this short video to find out what it means to strangle your axe.

We teach strangling your axe, and much more, on our Axe Workshop as well as on our Spoon Carving Course.

You can see photos from this and all of our other courses on our Facebook page.
