Best of the best
I Have a variety of axe/ hachets and the Wetterlings is by far the best , I spend a lot of time in the outdoors and this comes in very handy from blazing a trail to building a shelter and doing up the wood for my camp fires. I put a carbiner on the sheath and hangs off my belt

Pros: Balance, Head Material, None
Cons: Handle Material, Construction
A pretty good Axe Design, some tweaking and would be outstanding.
General purpose, backpack Axe. I like the general shape and hammer head. The length of time from order to delivery would have been nice to know. Improvements for me would be 3 inch less handle length and some sort of stippleing on handle for better grip.
