This is a tough axe with great balance. The 4-1/2" laminated steel blade has a "bearded" shape, which brings the center of gravity closer to your hand. The high-carbon edge is sandwiched between thick layers of softer steel that give the super-sharp edge great strength. It will be particularly good for splitting kindling. Japanese tools frequently look different, but those that try them inevitably find them wonderful to use. Overall length: 13"

With weight behind the blade, the sharp chisel edge is able to remove small branches in one whack, and can split or chop. This is light enough to wear on a belt (sheath not included), but heavy and balanced enough to be a truly useful tool for outdoorsmen (or women). Replace the cotton thong with quality leather and it is a tool you will respect and cherish. A true scouter's companion for backpacking.

BEWARE, this hatchet does NOT come with a sheath, nor is one available. This makes it's portability difficult. The company was unhelpful in resolving this issue.

High qual as advertised.

I wanted a pruning axe and as other reviewers have noted this is a splitting axe, not a cutting axe. The heavily rounded edge is a little challenging to sharpen, and metal seems a bit soft. I used it to chop down and section bamboo, and the rounded edge did not bite well. Great for chopping into dirt such as around sprinkler heads.
