well weighted sharp axe seems to be well made and strong

Did the job well
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.

Broke handle - not durable
Product is not as described - handle has wooden core - not fibreglass.
Head worked loose and then handle broke.

Broken @ 2 years old
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.
