There are two options for Edge Geometry 

Carving Axe Edge

This edge geometry is ground specifically for use in working green wood such as what is used for carving spoons and bowls. The edge has a primary bevel that is hollow ground to 30 degrees. This primary bevel gives the axe outstanding control when carving. The axe also features a secondary convex bevel. This convex grind increases the durability of the cutting edge itself.

Camp Axe Edge

This edge geometry features a tapering convex edge for all purpose use. The convex allows for a much more durable cutting edge when used for general chopping/splitting outdoor use. It can absolutely still be used to spoon carve but what is gained in durability with this edge is slightly lost in control of the cuts.
