Pros: Construction, Handle Material, Head Material
Nice EDC Axe
I know the concept of an every day carry axe is a bit odd, but for anyone who spends a fair amount of time outdoors, it can be quite handy having something with a bit more cutting power than a folder or belt knife. The sheath for this axe is quite excellent; good fit, strong leather, and a great swivel on the belt loop that makes it easy to move around with. The blade is very sharp right out of the box, about half way between a knife edge and an axe edge. The bearded design on the axehead makes it really easy to slide your hand right up under the blade for more control on fine work, like stripping bark or carving. Everything about this axe is very solid. The curved handle feels very good in your hand, and the curve actually seems to give your swing more power. I added a paracord grip/wrist loop for more security, but it really doesn't need it.
