What are your overall thoughts?

not bad for 30 bucks I picked it up for. Head is loose after a day, will mod. Out of box not bad edge at all. Handle isn't standard american.



Plyaing with other axes too. This guy needs no real regrinding out of box, just a slight touch up on the edge. I don't seem to get much shock from this axe.



It's also a beast with how fat the poll is.



Will let Jesse borrow it and see what he thinks.

Nice to hear that they make a decent hand tool as well as power tools. <img src='http://hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
