Primitive Technology: Stone Axe (celt)

233897 ratings | 21334412 views
The manufacture of a stone ax including the handle from using only primitive tools and materials. It is a celt (pronounced "selt") a type of ax with a polished stone head wedged into a hole or mortise at the end of a wooden handle (not to be confused with a "Kelt" referring to a Celtic person). The head took about a week and a day to make as I chose to make it from a particularly large piece of basalt. The hammer stone used to shape the basalt was of quartz. This involved hammering, pecking, grinding and polishing the head into the final shape. The handle took a day and a morning to make. A chisel was made from stone and a mallet made from a log. These were used to cut the tree for the handle and shape it once down. Fire was used to harden the wood and also to help shape the mortise. The ax was then used to cut down a tree the day after the handle was a tree itself. It is a more efficient tool for felling trees than the hand ax I made and at the time of uploading this video has cut down 4 trees which I will use later. Because this stone axe is blunter than a steel one, the blade needs to hit the tree at angles greater than 45 degrees- otherwise the blade would glance off. So celts were used more like wedges than modern axes. Wordpress: https://primitivetechnology.wordpress.com/ Patreon page: https://www.patreon.com/user?u=2945881&ty=h I have no face book page.

A local gentleman practices American Indian stone knapping. He demonstrated how Indians set the blade in the handle by tapping the end of the handle nearest the blade on a log or the ground to set it. To remove it they tapped the back of the blade on a log or the ground so it could be used as a hand axe. This way they carried one tool with two uses.

I am very surprised the wedge of the axe doesn't cripple the joint when he hits the tree, seems weird to me that the heating of the joint and then hitting the wedge into it forms a sufficiently solid connection that it would withstand the impact and the force when chopping on a tree. Even though he makes sure that the sides of the wedge doesn't touch the wood, I would still expect the wood to split vertically at the top and bottom of the joint. Guess he just does this with incredible skill and accuracy.

This is real primitive survival. Not making a fucking pool and hiding the shovel you bought from Walmart (and it some cases, fail at hiding it, as well)
