This is possibly the holy grail of camp axes/medium hatchets. For the money, you’re getting a hand forged axe head (in el salvador) hung with real care and attention (it is NOT coming loose, you can see a gorgeous cut from the head shaving the handle all around the eye equally) on an american hickory handle that is SOURCED FROM RESPONSIBLY GROWN FORESTRY (seriously that’s awesome) that is a really heavy piece of stock with a proper palm swell, care was taken to make sure the grain was correct, and no stupid clearcoat on the head or lacquer on the handle. Just a beautiful raw wood ready for your favorite oil (boiled linseed is my preference)

Looks cool and works ok

This is a pretty cool looking axe for the money. I do think it needs to have a better edge put on it but I’ve read that most axe heads are likie that from the factory. No sweat because I want to learn how to put a good profile on an axe anyway.

Nice axe at a good price.

The axe was pretty sharp out of the box but took a bastard file to it and sharpened it up a little more and evened up the grind a bit. Didn’t take too much work. After doing some research on line, I’ve concluded that they could have done a better job hanging the head. There wasn’t really a pronounced mushrooming of the handle at the top of the eye so I’m guessing the epoxy they are using is doing most of the work. I’m hoping I’m wrong though… Took the axe on my last camping trip where I used it to chop down some dead trees, process firewood and make tent stakes. It did a great job at all those tasks and the cutting edge stayed sharp. Not a “cheap” axe, but a nice axe at a good price.

Sturdy and well crafted

This is a classic, made in El Salvador in the tradition of the Scandinavian axes which are some of the best. No scabbard or lanyard, but we can fix that in short order.
