very good edge and weight.
on 16 February 2014
A good edge and a handy weight too the tool. The only thing I can say is a bad point is the smooth plastic handle. This gives very little in the way of a good, secure grip. however, this is cured by rubbing the yellow part of the handle (see picture) for a couple of minutes with some rough emery/sand paper.
This removes the smooth shine too the handle, giving a good, slight roughness on the yellow part of the handle, This is essential I have found so as to feel confident that the handle will never turn in my hand when using the axe. It would of course have been better if the axe CAME with a slightly rough handle to begin with, but this is not the case when new. I highly recommend that anyone who buys this axe does the same thing too their axe before use.
Other than this small, but necessary modification, I can firmly recommend this axe for light too medium chopping duties.
