History Edit

The double-bit axe had blades, or bits, on both sides. It was a large, heavy axe that speeded the cutting of trees. With two cutting edges, woodcutters could switch bits when one became dull and then sharpen both at the same time. Cutters worked faster and more efficiently with the double-bit axe.
