Pros: Head Material, Balance, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
Cons: None
This is now my favorite backpack \ BOB hatchet. perfect size and one mean chopping hatchet. Comes extreme sharp. The head is slightly over weight for the length of the handle, but it just adds to this hatchets chopping and shaving powers. Cannot say enough good about it. The Swedish know how to make some seriously good axe steel. Gone are my days of buying cheap axes \ hatchets and hoping they would be something they're not. This one hatchet will no doubt replace all my others. (I'm an axe \ hatchet \ tomahawk junkie so that says a lot)

Kick Ass!
This is the most badass hatchet in my little world. And the best price I found for it. I chose this one because I'm new to bushcraft and want to start with something I didnt have to replace all the time or worry about quality. Thanks guys and gals!
