Please Welcome Council Tool!
« on: December 01, 2017, 01:58:28 PM »
I'm pleased and proud to introduce to you our newest Forestry Forum sponsor
Council Tool!
 Please give them a warm welcome, visit their website and feel free to ask any questions that they can help you with. They will also hace a sponsor announcement board here on the forum where you can find and talk about information on thier many fine MADE IN AMERICA!!! products. :)

I think Council Tool will be a perfect fit for the Forestry Forum, in fact, they are jumping right in to help co-sponsor this year Forestry Forum Christmas Contest!  More on that soon!




Some History of Council Tool
John Pickett Council began making tools for the turpentine harvesting industry in the late 1800s. Mr. Council was a farmer, woodsman and a “producer” of turpentine. A “producer” was one involved with harvesting turpentine for market. He began making tools because he was dissatisfied with the quality of tools available for purchase. Word spread about the value of the tools he handcrafted, and he subsequently found himself selling tools. The business was incorporated in 1886, and it’s been manufacturing hand tools of one type or another ever since.

Council Tool uses only American steel in our forgings, American hickory or fiberglass in our handles, and we use all domestically produced materials and supplies. Before we attach the “Made in USA” label, we make sure ours is a quality product in every respect, that it measures up to our standards, and that it is a product that will represent excellent value for the user.

Through the years our product lines have evolved along with changing markets and consumer demand. Today, we offer broad product lines in categories such as axes; striking tools; forged bars for prying, pulling and digging; shrugging tool; pick mattocks and similar digging tools; wood splitting tools; and various specialty hand tools. The company also manufactures a number of tools distributed into firefighting markets and used by firefighters around the world.

While mindful of the need to evolve and change with the times, several things have not changed. We are still a family owned operation. Today, the majority stockholders also help run the operation and are on the plant floor every day. This close association within the company helps maintain our commitment to quality. Our plant associates, who actually make the tools, are second- and third- generation Carolina craftsmen who take pride in their skills and their work. Our company began with one man’s commitment to quality and satisfaction, and that same spirit remains with the company today.

John Picket Council had a fairly simple set of beliefs that he felt were necessary for success. We continue to operate by them today. Our philosophy is still to make top quality products, to offer good value, and to be innovative in the manufacture of products without sacrificing any integrity. This has guided us very well though three centuries, and we believe it’s the direction of our future as well.

I can attest to the quality of these tools. Made in North Carolina, reasonably priced IMO. A good sponsor for sure!

Hey Guys!

Thanks Jeff for setting this up !!  When I was asked how Council could connect with the public, customers, and end users of their products, I thought about Jeff, the forum, and the large audience that the FF has attracted over the years...

I knew it would be a good fit for everyone...

So check in at the Council Tool Sponsorship news section and let's talk all things axe and tools...

Peace, Rooster

Already said welcome but wanted to say my Council Hookaroon did extra work today in helping me get three small stumps out of the ground.  It did a great job in that the hook was able to get into the stump in the ground and let me pry at the stump.  The ground was soft and spongy but by working the hookaroon around the stump they came up easily.  Yes, I do use it in helping me move logs around my mill.

Yes Sir, it is the same company, and they still make the same rake...

Check out their website for more info, or for a trip down memory lane..
