Design didn't fit my needs
Nice steel and high quality sheath. Good size for a pack. I ran into a problem splitting kindling from scrap boards. The profile of the blade is more tear shaped instead of a wedge. Once the blade bit into the boards it would skew/twist once it transitioned from the cheek to the eye of the blade head. It would cause the wood to ride down the handle most of the time. This shape saves on some weight in the pack but hurts the functionality in my opinion. Fine for limbing and falling, not so much for splitting boards for kindling. I will look for a more wedge shaped blade design and make my son pack this one around. He's more likely to go out felling trees.

This is a Hatchet !
The title AXE is misleading. This is a pound and a quarter hatchet with an 18 inch overall long handle. That aside this is a very well made cutting tool that is well suited for light delimbing and small camp chore splitting. It would fit well inside of a pack or strapped to the outside without beating your legs with the handle every time you take a step. I have used it to do some basic carving and tinder producing and it did very well. The bearded style head allow you to choke up and get your hand behind the cutting surface for better control. You will not be doing heavy forestry felling with this axe. As long as you understand that you will be as happy with this purchase as I am. The wood grain on the Genuine American Hickory handle is cross grain to what an axe handle should have but this will never be used in a heavy enough application to make that an issue. The wood is straight grained with no heartwood. It will be just fine.
