Rated 5 out of 5 by from Small axe Very pleased, brilliant tool for DIY gardening, bought this to help removal of small trees in back garden and to chop logs for wood burner. Well worth the price. Once sharpened splits small logs with ease and doest take long to fell small to trees.

Is it worth sharpening this axe?

I have a blunt one, and I hate to waste stuff but I have to ask the question. At only £9.99 how much time is it worth spending sharpening this axe? What surface hardening has been done and will grinding it just soften the axe.
Asked by: Brainsurgeon
I bought several of these. None of them are even moderately sharp. You can literally hit your arm with the raw blade and it won't cut you. And because the blade is thick, I would compare it to the handle of a butter knife in terms of sharpness. It must be sharpened before you can do any type of cutting with it. You could use it as a hammer because it is so blunt.

Does this axe come already sharpened?

Asked by: LordRoss
No - it will need sharpening with a coarse stone or bench grinder - I made mistake of trying to sharpen it with a chisel sharpening block

does it come with a sheath or something to protect the blade

Asked by: Anonymous
Hello. The forge steel axe does not come with a sheath or pouch to put axe in, it does have a plastic cover over blade tip. Thank you for using Q and A.
