Great Axe

I bought the Kindling Axe needing something smaller to cut kindling and small branches. The first time I used it, I found it was everything I was looking for. Thanks

Excellent Axe

Purchased for general work, around the yard. Sharp edge right out of the box, well balanced, easy to swing. Maybe not suited to large trees, but great for light to medium work.

Another opinion

This is a nice light weight American made axe which is good for limbing out trees or cutting brush. Like the previous reviewer I too found that the axe took an edge and could be honed sharp. I also found the head was loose on the hickory handle. However the head is easily tightened by soaking the head of the axe in a pan of water. The head is tight and if it loosens again I plan to repeat the same process. I will purchase other items as need arises.

ehhh...

This axe is ok, it takes an edge really well with a file and diamond stone, and out of the three logs I split with it, and each time it went through like a hot knife through butter. Thatís the only good things I have to say. The cons are the wedge that holds the axe handle in to the head is made of soft aluminum and after pulling my axe out of the stump I was splitting on, the handle started to get really loose in the head. I tried to remove the wedge without harming the handle so I could replace it with a spare wooden wedge I had left over from another axe, but it was epoxied in place. Finally I gave up and returned the axe. So to review, the forest axe really holds an edge, is quick to sharpen and touch up with a diamond stone, but the handle comes loose really quickly and needs a wooden wedge instead of the soft aluminum one thatís already in it.
