Forge Steel Hickory Handle Felling Axe 26"
Brought during the last sale as a basic back up axe for "dirty" work clearing roots etc.
Great handle in shape, however it has been varnished/treated so in wet weather maybe interesting to play with. Feels lightweight to me personally however used to heavy splitting wedges and the like. Came blunt so will having to take time to sharpen properly - however this may have been done for safe transit.
As yet havent worked with it so cant comment fully only on first impressions so far.

Hickory Felling Axe-Sharp Deal
I thought this Axe would be too lightweight but am happy to be proved wrong. The Axe head is sharp and heavy enough to tackle the everyday cutting and felling I do for firewood. (I am not a lumberjack!).
For the regular but infrequent use I put this axe to it is ideal and great value for the money. I can't 'axe' any more from it. :)

Very well made traditional axe. Should last a lifetime if looked after. Shaped hickory shaft helps reduce the impact shock.

Good Little Axe
A good Axe, But, very blunt, spent over an hour sharpening this axe, and its still not sharp enough. Would make a good splitting axe, felling Axe ? maybe for a novice.
Its a little short in the handle, but not a major problem. Over all, does the job and will do a better job when SHARP.
