Must have for woodland survival

I got tired of dulling my knives cutting down sapplings to make woodland shelters, so I decided to try this one out. Not only is the blade amazingly sharp when it arrives, but it only takes a few minutes with a sharpener to get the razor edge back. While the hollow handle may give doubts about it's strength, it can take your hardest swings. Only problem I had was the crappy sheath, it limits wear options, and isn't very secure, I ended up making my own out of a MOLLE pouch that worked much better.

Most durable ax for wildland fire applications

I was aware of this axe but did not appreciate its merits until my S-211 Instructor told my class about his experience with it on wildland fire chainsaw assignments. I bought one and it has proven to be the best axe I have ever used. It is tailor made for the way I primarily use it...for hammering felling wedges into saw cuts in trees. It also has an amazingly sharp edge and holds it longer than any axe I have ever owned. The heft, balance and straight line handle design also rate an A+. Buy this axe and you'll never want to own any other.

Kick ass

alright i borrowed this off my dad, im always outdoors and this thing is the best hatchet ive ever touched. so damn sharp. the handle is hollow so you dont have all that extra weight. but the blade is sick, mad sharp. the case is cool it is velcro.
