Yardworks Wood Axe, 3.5-lbs
Good Solid Axe
It's a pretty solid axe. I mounted it on my Jeep and it actually weathers pretty good kept outside. I just put an extra coat of lacquer on the bllade.

Will do its job
Works great, but I did notice that the blade needed to be sharpened after 2 camping trips, but some time on the bench grinder and it was good to go.

The barber of the forrest
After my unfortunate expirience with the frail Fiskar's axe, I went out and found this bad dog. Snipping through low-lying branches, and felling sapplings with a stroke are qualities of this behemouth. Highly recomended.

It's an axe
It's a wood-handled axe. It chops things. Not much has changed about this sort of thing since steel was invented...
I've had it 7 years and it hasn't broken, so I'm happy with it!

got it this year for camping, love it so far, no wiggling in the head yet and it is well balanced.

This is a good axe, don't bother wasting money on the fiberglass handle one. Get it sharpened before using it when you first buy it.

I have not used a lot of axes in my life. I find I have to do a lot of sharpening, but that may be normal.

All You Need
I have used this axe every year for 7 years splitting a bush cord of hardwood each time. So long as you know enough to hit with the head and not the handle it will last for many more years. The 4 lb head is good however I would prefer a 5 lb if CT sold one.
