    I’m 140lbs. Due to its superb craftsmanship and lighter weight this axe allows me to split 18” rounds of fir.

    Great, well built axe

    Came very sharp. First thing to do is put on some linseed oil and WRAP THE HANDLE because the wood is rather soft. Cuts wood quickly and efficiently, no need for the bigger axes.
