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.

Great Axe for the Money
For the dollar, this is a great tool. Mine arrived sharp with very good grain orientation in the handle. I've taken it on a few trips and it's a good size for a backpack. While leading a scout trip with my son's troop, three of us spent over an hour chopping a felled oak log into 24" segments and the axe was still sharp enough to shave tinder afterward. I like the grind profile for overall use, but this is definitely not a dedicated wood working axe. The sheath is high quality.

Old production?
Received what appears to be an older production axe before Condor worked on the consistency of their quality control on these. the handle was a bit dinged up and the wood grain orientation is running the wrong direction for a strong handle. When I saw this I looked at the QC sticker and saw that it was from early 2012 and that the 2011 product catalog was in the box.
