Great Jersey axe for the money!
I bought the Jersey pattern head. I’m very satisfied with the grind of the head and the steel used. It took only about 10 minutes to put an edge on it that would pop hairs using a file and sharpening puck. I had no problem with edge rolling when putting a very fine edge on it with sharpening stones either. The handle is good and grain was fairly straight down the handle. The hang of the head is great. Good squeeze out of wood at shoulder and 100% contact all around. I couldn’t have hung it any better. I’ve already fell and couple trees with it and used it for splitting firewood and processing a tree that was topped and fell due to it being dead standing and close to a home and it did well. The clear finish that was on the cutting edge came of easily with acetone.
It is a great axe for light work, but the steel is soft and requires constant sharpening.
A lot of fun to play with but dulls quickly
A lot of fun to play with but dulls quickly. Let me put it this way, if you split wood occasionally for the fireplace or when camping this ax is probably perfect for you. If you are starting a business that requires wood splitting you might want to go with Husqvarna. I rarely need to split wood, honestly I just wanted a double headed ax to use while camping because they look cool. The handle is very substantial, as is the whole ax honestly but the handle is made from solid hickory and it has a nice wedge that holds it all together. I have never worried about the head flying off or the handle splitting into a thousand pieces like with some. The head is easy to sharpen and for its size easy to wield. The reason I did not score it better is because of how quickly the blade is dulled. Something else worth mentioning is that it is a big heavy hunk of ax, it would not make a good gift for a child or small person. 3 1/2 pounds maybe does not sound like much but when you add the handle to that and actually start swinging it gets heavy quick.
Using for splitting wood primarily and very happy with it.
Price to fun ratio is just right
For the price it works just fine! I bought it to compete in my first lumberjack ax throwing competition (came in 6th of 18… :)
