Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A real quality item The 14 inch Sportsman's ax is heavy enough to split small logs and light enough for my son's to use it effectively. And it draws attention with the leather grip handle. It is my first Estwing purchase and the high quality will promote me to buy their other products. There are other axes or hatchets for a similar price but they do not look as nice or feel as good when using them (the real reason you buy it anyhow). I used it to reduce larger split logs to kindling and the weight and balance allow it to do its job easily. My sons used it for splitting and bark removal for survivor shelter building and it was easy for them to use. With the one piece design I expect it will be passed down to my sons some day. There is an oval shaped metal plate at the base of the handle with the Estwing name, which makes a great place to engrave and hide your initials. April 8, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Every Guy Needs One of These I had one of these a long time ago and lost it, so I got another one. This is one of those items that I would choose if I could only pick one thing to take with me. It's small enough to pack, hold a great edge that can be used for shaving tinder, yet big enough to take down a small tree or hack through a log. There's no plastic to melt. No wood to break. Even if the leather somehow came off, the metal handle goes all the way down and you can still use it. Quality is excellent. It's made in the USA. July 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Hand Tool Initially I purchased a Fiskars hatchet to accompany me on camping trips. I was not aware that Home Depot sold Estwing products (other than hammers). For around the same price, this Estwing hatchet is superior in every way imaginable compared to the Fiskars. The Fiskars hatchet was made of sub-par steel, and the blunt end was already showing severe signs of wear just from hammering tent stakes. The Estwing is a completely different story - I even dropped it several times (accidentally) on damage. If you want a hatchet that will last a lifetime, this is the one for you. April 5, 2015
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Solid This small axe is great for small jobs. I got it to cut wood for fires at the house and it does a great job. Well built and sharp September 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quality Piece This is a great Axe! I had one for many years when I was younger and loved it; it was durable, balanced, and it held an edge very well. I found many uses for it around the house and it was indispensible on my many trips up to the back woods of Maine. I made the mistake of lending it out & it was not returned, I looked for many years to replace it & found it here. I got a new one last summer & remembered why I liked it so much! I would recommend this axe to anyone looking for a quality piece. It does need to be sharpened when you first get it but it is easy enough with diamond tool sharpener or I've even used a hand held knife sharpener on it before & it worked just fine.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great all around camp axe Strong, simple design for years of worry free use. Sure there are lighter or more specialized camp axes out there, but the Estwing single piece forged axe is the best general use one I've found. HD price isn't too much more than online, but worth the convenience to stop in my local store to pick one up before a trip. September 13, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great addition to camp. I needed something a bit smaller than the axe we use to split wood with at camp. Something to trim with and to get the fire started. This sportsman's axe is well made and it really does the job. The quality is top notch and you will not go wrong with this purchase. September 15, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by The best hatchet/hand axe ever My first introduction to the Estwing Sportsman Axe was more than 25 years ago when one of the leaders of my Boy Scout troop bought and donated it for our use. Used regularly--month in, month out-- for the five years I was there, this marvelous tool saw a lot of abuse but still was *the* hatchet all of us wanted to use. A little oil (to inhibit rust/corrosion) and occasional sharpening was all that was needed to keep it in working order. These hand axes are built to last. With one piece construction (head and handle), there's no chance the handle will break or that the head will fly off. That also means that more of the force of your swing goes into propelling the blade (a little energy is lost when head and handle are separate). Besides being functional, this Estwing Sportsman's Axe is a thing of beauty. When camping with mixed groups, or encountering others along portage trails, it often becomes a point of conversation (since I keep mine strapped to the outside of my pack). I love the fact that Estwing provided tool that wonderfully blends form and function. As to use and care, I've used this little marvel to calve off segments of 8" felled trees, to trim branches on dead fall, to quickly chunk wrist-sized fuel logs, and even to split and separate thin tinder and kindling. I've used it in every weather condition: from sub-zero cold to the heat of summer. It holds its edge quite well, but should be sharpened regularly like any axe or hatchet. About once a month, I'll wipe it down with some fine oil. If I need to store it for a few months (e.g., over the winter), I'll wrap the head in an oiled rag, just to ensure it stays in top shape. Over the years, the metal will spot and darken. To me, that just adds to the character and charm of the tool. So long as it is kept well-oild, those spots won't turn into any trouble. If you really want to restore the finish, you can always revert to using steel wool before buffing out the scuffs. I used one as a boy, long coveted my own, and have since even donated them to local Scout troops myself. To me, there is no finer hand axe to be had. Sure, you can find lighter tools made with composite handles, but, to me, the quality and durability of the Estwing Sportsman's Axe make it well worth its weight, even on the leanest back-country trips. Buy this hand axe--you won't be disappointed!!! January 8, 2011
