    Excellent axe

    It comes extremely sharp. It is a tad light at just under three pounds which makes it almost difficult to feel in your hands so be careful. For the weight it takes huge bites out of wood with relatively little effort. I was used to swinging a 8 pound double headed axe and the crossover was huge. I bought this axe mostly for wood chopping but it gets really dangerous when you're putting your downward force into it because like I said I couldn't feel it as well in my hands. It's more likely to go through whatever you're chopping and into your leg.. which is what happened to me. I've chopped alot of wood and I know this isn't a wood chopping axe. It's a felling axe. So the lighter weight and shorter handle combined with the superior axe head metal and sharpness are factors I will take into greater consideration, now. I love and respect the axe more, even after splitting my tibia like a piece of firewood. [I'm making a full recovery, no worries]

    It’s working hard

    I’m using this axe to trim some small felled trees and I find it to be easy to handle. It’s well balanced so it’s easy to work productively. The steel is of fine quality and the handle is superb! Thanks.
