Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Hambo Estwing 26 inch Axe
I've used these axes for years. The biggest problem is that the handle sometimes breaks right at the top of the grip. I've had that happen twice. However, they are light weight, comfortable to use and otherwise reliable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Buy american...it's always worth it
This is hands down the best axe I have ever purchased. It's american made and it certainly shows in its craftmanship. It is the most perfectly balance axe I have found yet and you do not have to worry about splinterred fiberglass handles when you miss...it might ring into your arm but it's forged steel. Buy it, try it, use it and most of all...enjoy the fact that it's american made and you are helping to keep a long known brand in America employing american citizens and pumping the hard erned dollars spend back into our economy.

The size and weight make it easy to use. I love it's size as it is perfect for storing in the tool box of my truck.
A very well made ax.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by SlimPickins CAMPER'S AXE WITH 26 IN. WITH NYLON-VINYL GRIP HANDLE
This camping axe is a very good American made product. I burn wood to heat the house and have found this axe to be very sharp and is great for producing kindling needed to start the fires in the stove. The all steel construction is great no more replacing the handles of axes that get loose with age or splinted when the operator (me) misses his mark and hits the handle, ol men don't see that good!!
Buy this product it is American and is made in the tradition of yore (before everything was imported) for those of you who are not my age!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mbrockus Well balanced and achieves its intended purpose
It's an axe! Good for chopping, skinning bark, driving in wooden stakes and probably would be good for that zombie attack.

This is hand's down the finest wood axe I've ever owned (and I've owned a more than a few).
I pride myself on being quite the outdoorsman, and the axe is my tool of choice, what most folks do with a chainsaw I do with an axe.
The balance and weight on this axe makes it ideal for light to moderate wood chopping. It comes with a GREAT edge already placed on it (a rarity in these modern litigous times). The axe is set up so that a large/strong individual can use it either one handed or two handed. It's also sturdy, with the shank and head constructed from the same piece of steel.
Bonus for American craftsmanship, I'll likely buy my next hatchet from the same company! Bravo home depot and Bravo to Estwing!

I purchased this for camping to gather fire wood. Sharp from the factory an works awesome. No vibration or shock in the handle at all. I've had other sizes an styles of axe this by far is the best an probably the last I'll ever buy.
