Ideal size billhook for the harvesting of coppice material, small poles, working-up material and cleaving.
The hook of the Devon is quite large which is why many people favour it to split hazel rods.
The pattern of a Devon Billhook demands a notch on the blade near the ferrule which we understand allows you to quickly drop a knotted leather loop into, the loop hangs from the wrist, this takes some of the strain out of holding a billhook for extended periods of time. We have never tried this and do not know of anyone who has, it's just the pattern.
Another feature of a Devon is a blunted tip on the blade, this makes it stronger and less vulnerable to damage when cutting close to the ground.
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 caulked oval handle, made of varnished ash, is 140mm (5 1/2") long, the blade is approx 230mm (9" long).
In our opinion these hand-made Morris Billhooks are far better than anything else on the market, despite the need for grinding and sharpening before use. An uneven edge with some flats are typical.
THIS TOOL WILL NEED GRINDING AND SHARPENING BEFORE USE.
