This is a great, heavy hatchet for it’s price. The steel is top-notch for the price. If you’re unfamiliar with carbon steel, do your research prior to buying any hatchet better than a Chinese import, as this axe may not be for you.

It’s a very nice little hatchet

It’s a very nice little hatchet. Mine had a very straight wood grain and a beautiful handle before treatment with boiled linseed oil. I would recommend the treatment and a handle protected, I am wrapping mine in orange 550 cord, just to keep the handle pretty.

I don’t give 5 stars often. Husqvarna axes deserve 5 stars!!! Don’t buy another hatchet!

If you look at my review history you’ll see that I very rarely give a product 5 stars. My qualifications for a five star product is that it must not only be one of the best products available in that market space but also at a very reasonable price and Husqvarna hits a homerun on both!

If you can only have one tool…

I purchased this axe for a 9 week long bushcrafting school in northern Maine. I found that it was able to handle any axe related chores around camp as well as for chopping medium and smaller trees. Where this axe truly excels is in crafting: I have made 4 good quality long bows using only this axe, and I find that impressive. If you keep a file with you this tool can be as sharp as any knife and just as easy to use. I highly recommend this product for anyone who knows what they’re looking for, as well as anyone looking to get their first quality axe. It is a permanent part of my pack.
