Did the job well
29 Apr 2014
By dingle
, Suffolk
"I was digging out a 25 year old leylandii conifer and came across several lateral roots 4 - 5" diameter. Did not fancy damaging chainsaw so bought this axe. Ordered online and picked up 10 minutes later. Sharp and ready to use straight out of the box. Easy to swing, cutting through the roots nicely with a bit of effort. Had the tree out in an hour."

LIght weight axe

"At the risk of sounding chauvinistic a light weight axe that my wife can use as well, needed a little sharpen but that was to be expected. Good product."

"I bought this axe to help remove a large tree and its roots etc . Because I will only use it now and again I didnt want to spend a fortune on it. This axe fits the bill perfectly whilst being a well made tool it is not expensive ."

"I bought this to get a tree trunk out of the ground, it performed well in areas that were just not prctical to use the chain saw.
Nice and sharp, with enough weight behind it to bite deep!"

"Bought it to chop up some logs, and it chopped up the logs.
Comfortable handle, good grip on the rubber area of the handle.
Seems to be heavy enough for the job i was using it for. Was certainly sharp enough.
Also comes with a small blade cover for when you store it.
Not much else i can say about it. Good axe."

"All-in-all, this is a good axe for general all round chopping. Bought it to chop out some dead stumps - worked a treat!
Not too expensive and does exactly what you would expect.

Broken @ 2 years old
11 Jan 2013
By TonyPD
, Dorking
"Performed reasonably well for the price before breaking but the core of the shaft is wood which no doubt contributed to its demise. 2 years old at the most. I thought the core was fibreglass as well from the description.
We have a log burner so a lot of winter use but not really suitable for heavy work. Started to work its way loose from the head. Go for better, heavier quality if you want it to last. Not constructed wholly in fibreglass as described so a bit of misleading info. there Screwfix.
"
