There’s nothing "fancy" about this one. But we were attracted to it by its "rough & ready" crudeness. Starting with the rectangular shaped laminated handle, this is a tool you can abuse and ignore (or even leave outside in bad weather) without feeling too guilty. Yet it’ll do the job when called on. Everyone (including fine tool lovers) needs one or two like this around. Made in China.

  • No frills axe

    Gary Parisi, 2/1/2017 I found the Wade Garrett website quite by accident, but I'm glad I did. When I saw the Basic Kindling Axe I knew right away that it was for me. I'm a Civil War reenactor and have been looking for a period ax for a very long time, without success. When I read the other review, I knew I had to give this one a try. The price was very reasonable, it arrived quickly and I used it that day. It has a good heft to it, isn't overly heavy and, as stated, there's nothing fancy about it. It did the trick of making kindling quickly and easily. The only "drawback" is that I'll have to sand the handle some to round the edges a little more as it was a bit uncomfortable after a while. Small price to pay for a camp ax that could have been handmade and used in the 1860's. Thank you, Garrett Wade.
  • Primitive Camp Axe

    Joe Hancsak Jr., 11/1/2016 My son and I are Mingo Militia & Whiskey Rebellion Re-enactors in the Pittsburgh, PA. area at the Oliver Miller Homestead (circa 1772) in South Park, Allegheny County, PA. I've been looking for a primitive camp axe. When I saw the axe in the Garrett Wade catalog I received in the mail. I thought, that's just what I've been looking for. Unfortunately, I had to wait quite awhile for the axe, because it was on back order for months. I received the axe early last week and it is perfect for the Eighteenth Century Re-enactor. I will be recommending this axe to members of our group and the Pennsylvania 8th Regiment of the Continental Line. It has a good weight and it looks like it will be a durable tool.
