Rated 5 out of 5 by My Hatchet I inherited an Estwing hammer from my grandpa many many years ago so I know their tools that last generations. I needed a hatchet and got this one. I removed the stickers and used WD 40 to remove the glue from the stickers. Gave it a bit of sharpening and will be mostly using mine for breaking up cow femur bones. Can also be used for splitting elk, moose, and deer spines for horse packing or quartering. You can either chop with the hatchet or place the blade where you want to cut and strike it with a mallet or hammer. Remember to use safety glasses as bone fragments will be going everywhere, but this hatchet will not be damaged what so ever. I just cut up a frozen cow femur bone with ease! Can't even tell I used the hatchet. Their tough tools!!! December 21, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 by good hatchet for cleanup I use this hatchet extensively when cutting wood. Usually I only use it to remove small limbs from firewood or to chop the stringy bits that are involved with splitting poor quality hardwoods like hackberry. If you need something throw away there are cheaper options. On the other hand, if you want a nice tool that will last, then this is the best one HD has to offer. March 25, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 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
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Hatchet! Solidly built and the blade comes very sharp. No other hatchets in the store even came close to comparing to the quality of this product. November 11, 2014
