Less than I expectedI bought the Bavarian hatchet looking for something smaller than the full size single bit axe I was using to cut kindling. First time using the hatchet, I found the head was loose and the edge would not stick in the wood meaning I had to swing the hatchet with force at the piece of wood I was holding with my other hand, putting my thumb and finger at risk. And even then, I found that the shape of the head made it hard to keep it in the wood and finish splitting off a small piece for kindling.

Thank you for your review on our Bavarian Felling Axe. We are sorry that you had trouble with the axe head becoming loose. Because wood swells and shrinks in different weather conditions, an axe head will from time to time become loose. When this happens we recommend using a hammer or mallet with a punch or nail set to drive the wooden wedge into the handle tenon to improve the fit. We appreciate your feedback and we will now include instructions to accompany each order for this item.
