Better than I thought it would beI've been collecting and restoring axes for a while now and have seen and bought a lot of handles. The handle on this axe is very dense and good quality with excellent grain orientation. It is shaped well and is not your average store-bought handle and is not covered with laminate which makes for a nice smooth handle and easier to swing without getting blisters. The handle also seems I have already been coated with linseed oil which is very nice they also did a nice job on engraving the handle and it is aesthetically pleasing. The only thing I would prefer would be maybe another inch and a half in the length of the handle however it makes for a good backpacking axe because of the length. The metal handle guard up at the top is attached very well and it's not loose by any means. The head of the axe is a high quality Steel with a very good temper to it it holds an edge very well. The edge is it very well ground and sharpened unlike many other axes where you have to re sharpen them yourself Straight Out of the Box. This website does not mention the blade length however it measures about five and a half inches. The head of the axe is also hung very well on the handle and is not going to come loose on you. For the price of this axea you're getting a very good quality product and you're paying your half the price you would for other manufacturers for the same quality. I would highly recommend this product if you need a good camping axe backpacking axe or just a daily Chopper.
