A "celt" is a term meant to describe a stone ax where the stone is wedged vertically into a wooden handle.  These tools were used all over the world for many primitive projects.  When the stone is not touching on the sides and only wedged in vertically, it is extremely durable (imagine trying to pull a log apart by the ends).  If the sides touch then it will split the handle as you chop.  It is especially fun to make a celt without using any modern tools.  Here is a photo-tutorial of making a celt from all primitive tools.  Enjoy...
