Good Chopper
28 Oct 2014
By Kiteflyer

" Bought this for kindling Knowing that it would need sharpening before use. After sharpening axe was the ideal weight and made an excellent tool for chopping kindling. Not used it a great deal so don't know how well it will keep its edge. "

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"

So blunt it couldn't be used
30 Dec 2014
By Daveevesham
, Evesham
" Picked this up in the xmas sale for bargain price of less than a fiver . However on removing the protector from the axe blade I found it to be ridiculously blunt. Hardly makes a dent on some wood logs for fire, let enough cut into them
Will need to get it sharpened before it can be use, but at the price in the sale it's worth keeping. "

" I thought that it was good value for money. A day after purchasing an axe is not the best time to review its' quality, ask me again in three years time. "
