A great choice for the outdoor enthusiast who has a lot of clearing to do,Fiskars brush axe features a precision-ground 9 inch steel blade with a rust-resistant, low-friction coating to rip through underbrush and wood with speed and ease. The tough FiberComp handle is lightweight for easy handling and multiplied swing speed, yet still stronger than steel for lasting value. The insert-molded design means the blade won’t loosen or separate from the handle. Includes Fiskars Brush Axe Sheath for convenient storage and transportation.
Good quality brush axe that is easy to keep sharp

This is a good quality brush axe that is easy to keep sharp. I do both arborist and landscaping work for a living and I find that this brush axe stands up very well for both. The photos I have seen of blade damage to this axe appear to be caused by misuse and simple lack of technique by those who seem inexperienced with using brush tools. These are not meant for cutting large logs or metal(some of the pics show damage which is obviously from an attempt to cut a metal fence) and for $20 you will never find such a tool. I have a heavier more expensive brush axe which I use for thicker brush and smaller logs but even that one would be damaged by trying to cut a thick log or metal.
An outstanding tool and a terrific value

I am a professional archaeologist and spend a considerable amount of my working day in extreme environments. Based and mostly working in Texas, I encounter some of the thickest, thorniest, viniest, and meanest brush imaginable. Of all of the tools in my toolkit, this brush axe is pretty close to being my best friend. Fiskars has hit a home run with this one.
Bridges the gap between Hatchet and Machete beautifully

Working for a municipal Park Ranger Department, i find myself constantly needing to clear small amounts of brush that impedes trails. Usually for vehicles, quads or horses and the occasional hiking trail.
Will do the job. Seems stoutly made. While the handle is hollow, the balance is good and time will tell how it holds up, and I expect it will.
Outstanding Tool for the Job It’s Designed to Do. But you need to add grip tape to handle or it is too slippery.
Outstanding tool with great balance and strength despite light weight which reduces fatigue.
Works as it should

Before I used a machete to clear branches from fallen trees so I had space for cutting the tree with my chainsaw. The machete is awkward when you are in between a tangle of branches and neighbors will look alarmed when they see you slashing away in your yard with a machete. Not with this. It is easier to maneuver between branches, has enough heft to cut through branches and the hooked part helps to deliver the blow at the right part and works great for pulling branches out of the way. Very happy with this!
After looking at a lot of kinds of brush clearing implements, I took a chance on this one due to positive reviews here and on YouTube. I haven’t been disappointed in the least. It’s very lightweight but very effective at hacking through all kinds of brush, honeysuckle, etc. once one gets the hang of it. One suggestion: the handle is very smooth so I suggest wrapping it with friction tape or something similar so that it doesn’t slip out your grasp.
Hack and slash your way to trail clearing victory.
Hack and slash your way to trail clearing victory with this mighty woods weapon. Great grip for aggressive one handed operation. Curved blade tip prevents your bramble prey from evading annihilation. Thick blade and sturdy handle allow you to wield it with reckless abandon. Pricker bushes, 1″ limbs, even full size trees cower in the brush axes presence.
