The Forest Axe is a hefty, full-sized tree chopper with a 31-½" handle, a 5-½" long cutting edge and an extra stout neck. This is the biggest axe in our selection, with its 8-½" head (from edge to poll) inches longer than comparable axes. When you hold this axe, you just know it’s up to all of your felling and limbing tasks. It feels substantial in the hand—but not too heavy. The added heft of the longer and thicker head creates momentum on the swing, making the job go quicker. The woodchips will be flying.

The handle is European ash, a wood traditionally used for long tool handles, for its durability and shock resistance. (The same reasons ash is commonly used in baseball bats). A red steel safety collar protects the top of the handle from potential damage caused by overstrikes. Made to our specifications in Germany by a well-respected foundry. Highly recommended. An excellent value.

  • Solid piece

    Derrick, 12/18/2020 Nice sharp blade,and it feels very sturdy. I hope to have it a long time. I like the red accents. Make it looks like a fireman’s ax
  • Handle broke within 6 months

    Daniel Cifuentes, 12/18/2020 I bought this axe in May, and have used to take down some small trees, and chop some of the wood. After only six and a half months the handle broke.
    Not precisely a made to last tool. The head is very well made though.

  • Works great, best deal

    Jerek Strouf, 11/16/2020 Thought i would only use this axe as a hand tool... then i threw it. Perfect throwing axe as well. I will not throw this often as the head is a lose fit unless tightened.
    Came to me very sharp ready to go. Free blade protector is useful. Hard forged AXE=PERFECT.
  • Good deal

    Steve Kovalick , 11/13/2020 I've only had the chance to use this axe a few times at this point. That said, I've cut Ash, Hickory, and White Oak with it. The head needed a little extra attention while settling into the new handle, but all in all a great axe and you can't beat it for the money.
  • Pretty good Axe for it's price.

    IIvan / small operation Tree felling and Bucking splitting fire wood., 11/8/2020 Nothing extra special over many other axes, the blade head steel quality is good it seems has been given good heat treating also blade has good geometry.
    Like many mass production axes, you will need to do some needed sharping to it's blade.
    One item i really found not up to minium standards, is the staking of handle to the head mine seems tight but the wood shows signs of cracking, not the quality i expected, if it fails i will just replace the handle and stake it correctly.
  • Axe review

    Danny R, 5/31/2020 beautifully made and well balanced.
  • Solid tool for the job

    Cabink, 5/18/2020 Solid and well balanced, straight grained nice handle that will get a little sanding while the edge gets a little sharpening to make it great. Easily worth it relative to money spent on a cheaper version from the lfree cal hardware store.
  • Excellent forest axe

    peter, 4/6/2020 Fantastic axe. Have used it to process some trees into firewood on my property right out of the box. Gets the job done. The strike plate is great for protecting the handle. The steel is hard and holds an edge well. The handle seems strong and grain orientation on mine is straight. Great value all purpose axe.
  • Well made and fairly priced

    Bill, 2/5/2020 This axe is fantastically well made and priced fairly. The fact that you ship a return label with your products in case there is any problem is a real bonus that makes me confident about buying additional products from you. I just wish it was made in the US instead of Germany.

  • Not satisfied

    Brett , 7/21/2018 The ax head was not secure and kept moving when we used it to chop our small trees. It took hours of working on it to fix.

    Response By: Garrett Wade Tech Department
    Thank you for your review on the Forest Axe and "Tomahawk" Hatchet. We're sorry to hear that the head was not secure. Sometimes due to weather conditions, the wood will swell or shrink but it sounds like it was something else, in this case. Please feel free to return it for another which has been inspected by a product specialist. We apologize for the inconvenience.
