Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BDRB Owned for 1.5 years now.
I have cut down everything from bamboo, to 10" trees, to going into the ground, to straight dry logs. Finally sharpened it for the first time today. I am writing this review because I was looking for a shorter axe for bushes and started to read the reviews here about what I own and I am not having any issues with this axe. I don't use power equipment to do yard work or tree work. I love the physical aspect of doing it by hand. I have tried to break this axe (still using it properly) and can't. It has held a sharp edge through far more than a lot of other's I've had. The head is firmly in place still. The handle is perfectly solid still. I even left it out the entire winter lodged in a stump and other than some color bleaching from the weather, pulled it out and went back to work, rock solid.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jay Decent, durable, and
Used the product for splitting wood. I have split about 3 cords of wood before having to sharpen it. I would recommend sharpening it prior to use. Have gone through oak, pine, and ash. Green and seasoned. Works well. Rubber mounting is starting to rip due to striking it on the wood. For the most part I haven't had issues with the axe itself. Don't know if the handle is an issue or if it's splitting for continuous 4hrs. But overall, it does the job.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tbcmcc Head Loosened
Bought this one over the standard wood handled version side by side on the rack. This one was a few dollars more and I thought the composite handle would outlast the wooden one. On the third strike when the axe bit in and i wiggled the handle to loosen it from the wood, I notice the handle wiggled, but eh axe head did not. Already loose. Took it back that day. I see others have had that problem. Wish I had read these before buying.

the head came off and there went my tool. Better to spend a little more and buy a better tool

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WarrenPeace Satisfied, despite mild axe-head movement
After chopping apart some (a single, large piece) old deadwood from a peach tree the head was a little bit loose, about a millimeter of up/down movement at the base of the head. Still does the job, but the movement has me a little bit worried.
Overall I'm at least satisfied with the price and the lifetime warranty's a good security blanket if the thing does ever break, but if you're willing to spend more money then I'd suggest doing so.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JCalton Accurate. Affordable. Perfect weight. Sharp.
I just purchased this axe to deal with some large cherry tree roots from the neighbors tree that have grown into our side garden which we are getting ready to lay sod. I was a bit skeptical at the quality because of the $25 price tag. Since it is Husky brand I know I can return it if it breaks on me.After digging down around and underneath the large winding root it was time to put the new tool to the test. I was more than impressed. The first section I cut was about 3 inches thick. With the first swing it hit hard and true and cut deep. The handle has as great grip. The head has a nice weight. It took about 9 or 10 strikes and I was through the root much faster than anticipated. Then I moved down to the next section of root. it was closer to 4 or 5 inches in diameter.After the first use I was more comfortable with a full swing. I didn't count how many strikes it took, but it literally took me less than 30 seconds to break through. I was amazed at how quickly the job was done. I thought it was going to be much more difficult as I have chopped firewood for years as a teenager at home, and up camping. It could be because it was a live root . Regardless this fine tool felt solid and fluid I am thoroughly impressed with this purchase and look forward to finding more things that need a good chopping. Granted it is new and sharp, but I have no issue of re-sharpening the blade. I'm going to get some wedges and see how long it will take to split a tree stump next weekend. I'll give you an update then. Go get yourself one and you won't regret it. If you do they have a great return policy.
