Best value on a traditional axe
Other than poor head fitting( which hasn't caused issues yet) that I can nearly see through it is the most used axe I have. Best size and weight for most chores. I have used mine extensively on cedar eradication but also on oak an cottonwood trees. Handle needed a little boiled linseed oil but that's normal. These axes are made by a very well known (expensive) Swedish maker gransfors bruks. Sometimes hults bruks. Not sure if it's the ones that do not pass inspection or what but they are still higher quality than anything else you will find. The head retains its edge super well.

Buy it. it's the best value out there and a super good axe. Needs sharpening. I bought all kinds of expensive axes.turns out this new is the only one I need. When I go to the field I leave those expensive ones at home and take this one every time. The best all around axe you can get. Their such a good value I ordered more just to have in the cars at all times.

Its a great axe just like its name, can be used for multiple task! The grain orientation is perfect, feels good on the hand, light but heavy enough to deliver a deep cut. I would honestly recommend this axe. Also delivery was fast.

Perfect for Green and soft wood
I got this axe because it was half the price of a real good name brand, and for chopping I can be rough on all parts of an axe. When I got it, it had a nice edge, but a bur on one side. Instead of honing it, i took the edge of a flat file and gently scraped the bur off to leave a razor sharp edge. I cut a dead maple log and noticed that there was a bur again. This time the edge was rolled just a little. I fixed it and cut down three large dead maple trees and the edge was rolled a little but still sharp. Since the blade is thin it cuts exactly like an axe ought to, but it isn't made for dead hardwood. The bevel seems too thin for hardwood. This axe does great for green wood and soft wood, but the edge rolls on dead hardwood.
Another little problem is that the handle is not as firm in the head as it should be. Stuck into a stump I can move the handle just a little in the head. But I'm going to add a wedge and that should firm it up enough to not move.
For the price these little problems are fine and it does what an axe should do. By all means it cuts extremely well due to its thin blade. But if a person wants an axe that is perfect they should probably go for a little more with a higher price. Just remember that an axe can only cut as good as its user! I got a carpenter axe at twice the price from a different maker and its edge doesn't roll and the handle is completely solid. But then it's for carpentry so I want it to last forever. Even still I really like this axe for general cutting - it does its job extremely well!

Love this axe!
I bought this axe because I wanted to clear some land and didn't want to have to ask someone with a chainsaw to help.

It is awesome. The blade is fantastic, sharpens easily, holds a nice edge. It's just the right weight and very ergonomic.

I am very pleased that I found this axe before spending more money on some of the others on the market.

Great axe
Holds an edge well, straight tight grain on handle. Sanded handle with 80, 100 and 150 grit then applied several coats of boiled linseed oil. Love this axe and CPO customer service is outstanding.

Get the Axe, it's not a trick.
Thanks to Wranglerstar on youtube for turning me on to this product. It's an axe, there is not much to say. It is built of good quality steel that won't need continuous sharpening like those cheap big box store brands. Sharper axe equals less work effort and after splitting a cord of wood you'll be happy you spent the extra couple of dollars. Speaking of staying sharp it comes straight out of the box fairly sharp, enough to start working at least. Remember there are always those out there that think it should be as sharp as a ninja sword. Well it ain't it's a frick'in axe made to cut wood produced in the past year not a sword made hundreds of years ago to cut a man in half in one swing. CPO after looking for the best deal was by far the cheapest with their first time free delivery so much so I also got the Husqvarna 13" hatchet.

Does it come with a sheath when you buy it?
A shopper on May 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes nice style could fit a little tighter but it does protect the edge and it is compact enough to slip in your pocket while using the axe
how well does it keep an edge and how easy or difficult is it to sharpen?
A shopper on Aug 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It keeps its edge well. It takes a bit to sharpen it. The edge is heat treated pretty hard but not unsharpenable.
