Perhaps you should consider burying it
Give us a long term report when you get your log cabin done.
I got a Sater Banko I paid 25$ for that I'll swap you for 100$ cash boot.
But I have sincere doubts you'ld pay it, or I'd not offer.
And if you took me up on it, I'd be crying and trying to back out.
And it doesn't have Nearly the rep of my Granfors Bruks, for that matter not even up to my Kelly Perfect.
Those little Gerber hatchets are placeholders. Wetterlings is entry level. Granfors Bruks is adequate. Arguements over 'best' involve axes built between 1920 and 1950 or so.. Collins Legitimus being on the short list..
That's a hatchet.
Short handle, most of the mass forward, back forged for whacking things ....
It's a hatchet.
I like my Fiskars. They are the best axes and hatchets I have ever owned. I have a Fiskars splitting axe that weighs about 1/5rh what my other wedge axe, but it splits substantially better. Good stuff. Eric
I have 4 Fiskars starting with the little hatchet up to the splitting axe.
I agree...Good stuff.
I'm a fan of the Gransfors Bruks axes from Sweden...and especially like the Forest Axe. The Forest Axe sells for around $100.
Gransfors are forged from a Swedish steel that is specifically created for axes. When a Gransfors smith is satisfied with his work, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label. The end result is a well-balanced, durable, and easy to sharpen tool.
I saw one of those in the store a couple of days ago, almost bought it. Looks handy. Let us know how it works out.
You know, now that I think about it, that Gerber hatchet looks a LOT like a Fiskars product. I wonder if Fiskars is making it for them? Eric
And my understanding is that, yes, they are making them for Gerber.
from one of the amazon.com reviews:
I can pound the Fiskars hatchet down with use to where it needs a little sharpening. A little TLC with a file is usually more than enough to sharpen her right up. Travels in the truck.
I have one of these. Sweet axe. Not a splitting axe though.
