Using this axe to remove a large stump . Works well but it’s starting to get a slight wiggle. Hopefully it doesn’t get any worse or I’ll have to replace the handle. Like a lot of people have said, it’s a good looking axe. I need it to work though.
Nice axe and great balance
Great ax for the price. I expect this to last a long long time.
Light, sharp, dependable

I am in love with this axe! Being 5’3″, I have found axes with longer handles a bit harder to control. I am able to swing my S&N with much more control and purpose, making my swing more efficient and productive. The blade is extremely sharp and has held its edge very well. I highly recommend this axe.
I like the shorter handle and it’s very well balanced
Very impressed by this axe. I like the shorter handle and it’s very well balanced. Out of the box the head is not very sharp but still capable of falling a tree. I’m looking at S&N’s Hudson Bay axe next and would definitely buy this one again!
… out of the box in order to get a good edge on the blade

Required significant sharpening out of the box in order to get a good edge on the blade. It took about an hour between a mill file and Lansky sharpening kit to get the axe to where it needs. For the price of the axe, I would expect it to come with a better edge on it. The handle seems to be good quality, with the grain running in the right direction.
Awesome deal, for a great quality Axe!

I really wanted a best-made company axe to combo as a useful tool as well as a cool wall ornament when I am not actually out camping and such (most of the time). But those were rediculiously priced so after reading some reviews I picked this bad boy up, did some basic masking taping, sprayed on some color, finished her off with a nice clear laqour and made a simple wood frame to hang it from the wall in… Waa-laa… Great quality at a great price. Highly recomended.
