Small Garden ToolInteresting tool. Perhaps designed for the ladies, rather than for a guy. Very small and very lightweight. It would struggle hacking through anything larger than a small root. Found steel to be very soft, but sharpened easily. The handle is a nice shape, but again, probably meant for a ladies hand.
Perfect SidekickI live on a good sized ranch and I'm most always outside working. I'm a petite woman so this axe is perfect to have with me, whether its tucked into my belt or in my tool basket. I'm certain this tool wasn't designed for large jobs. With that being said, its perfect to get small trees out of the way or chopping briars down at the base. I only wish there were a leather sheath so it could be easily carried on my belt. This axe isn't extremely sharp, but for its purpose, its plenty sharp. I did have my farrier use his grinder to sharpen it some because Texas tends to have tough vegetation. Its very easy to sharpen. I've not had any issues with the axe head loosening from the handle. This little guy is my sidekick.

Great Design, Loose HeadThe axe head is not properly fitted to the handle, and came loose after a single day of light use. Otherwise the design and craftsmanship is excellent, and the axe would be, too -- if not for this very basic flaw, which a customer simply shouldn't find in a tool of this class. Very disappointing.
