"I purchased this product a few days ago and it has paid for itself already. A great axe that is weighted well and tough enough for those stubborn logs."

Good value general purpose axe
24 Oct 2013
By Herbie12
, Herts
"I lived in Sweden for a few years and have cut and seasoned tons and tons of firewood. Alas, I left all my lovely axes there when I moved back, but I know my axes. For £12, this is a good value general purpose hand axe. Reasonable hickory handle and the head profile is general purpose - somewhere between what in Sweden would be a birch cleaving and a hardwood axe. Despite the sales description, the axe comes blunt and needs to be sharpened before use. Lots of guides on the internet, but you really need a file and an axe stone or equivalent to get a good edge. Once sharpened it is fine. Not in the same league as a Gränsfors, but good value for 12 quid."

Nice Axe
21 Jun 2013

"A nicely balanced forged axe but despite what the description says it comes with no edge what so ever.
Once sharpened this is a nice axe but don't expect to use it "out of the box"

"Good little axe, wish I had bought slightly heavier one though. Only used for splitting logs into kindling."
