Every visit I made to Home Depot for several years invariably ended with me looking at this axe when I made it to the tool section.  I always thought it was a beautiful tool, but I could never justify spending 40$ on something I would have limited opportunities to use.  Eventually I couldn't resist and on impulse I treated myself to this product.  I've tested it in comparison to cheaper models which I use for camping and unsurprisingly it performs just as well, though it does look better doing it.  It is great for creating kindling or making small diameter starter logs for a wood stove--both of which I've used this for and it performed admirably.  It holds its blade, has a great weight distribution, and feels good on the swing. I don't regret purchasing it, but it really wasn't a must have and I've used considerably cheaper versions that perform just as well. The extra price is worth the showmanship to me, but functionally there's little difference from competitors at lower price points.

I received a Estwing E14A hatchet as a gift for my 8th birthday. I am now 54 and still treasure it. I have owned other hatchets, but they were junk compared to the Estwing. The tapered, hollow ground blade will slice into wood where other "steep angled" hatchets will just rebound off. The solid, one piece steel design eliminates the head flying off a handle like the cheap hatchets. As a kid, I had no idea how to take care of it. I had dropped it in the woods and lost it, then miraculously stumbled across it a year later (this happened more than once!). I have left it out in the weather, and pretty much abused it as much as anyone could. Due to my lack of care, the leather discs on the handle dried out and rotted over the 45+ years I have owned it. I removed all the leather discs and wrapped the frame with leather thong (leather string) multiple times til the handle was built back up to the same size. I took a few spray cans of marine spar varnish and repeatedly soaked the leather until I built up a thick heavy coating that will last for another generation. My Grandson turns 8 soon, and I am purchasing an E14A for his birthday present. Over the years, I have purchased several E44A Camper's axes and E45A Long handled Camper's axes both for myself and a few of each for our Boy Scout troop. There is no way you can go wrong with purchasing Estwing products!

    Small and Tough
    First off, this is a small hatchet and suited for small jobs. Within the limitations of its size, this is a high quality tool as every Estwing product I own has been. I carry this backpacking when forced to be weight conscious. I wouldn't use it on pieces of timber larger than 3-4" in diameter unless I absolutely had to. It could conceivably cut down a tree, but it would take a long time. That said, it's far better than trying to baton a large knife. There is a fair amount of skill and technique involved in using a hatchet this size efficiently. Very few people get into it beyond occasional recreational use. For the vast majority of people the next size up would be a better choice. On paper the size difference doesn't look like much, but I can tell you the E24A (14") is in fact much more capable. The trade off being size and weight. Estwing makes very tough tools. The leather handle does require some care. Don't leave it out in the elements for extended periods of time. Aside from that it's almost bullet proof. Expect that you will need to touch up the edge with a file or stone when you get it. If you own any cutting tool you need to know how to do this. The hatchet is proudly made in the USA. The sheaths are foreign made, but generally very nice. To sum it up... This model is really for experienced bushcrafters in need of a light weight chopper who understand and can work within the limits of it's size. Also okay (with close supervision) for a younger person learning to use a hatchet that doesn't posses the strength to control a larger one. Great build quality and value. This model isn't easy to find. Glad I could order it from Home Depot. *(photo of E14A(12") and E24A(14") included for size comparison)

    Excellent hatchet to carry camping with me and just throw in my survival gear. It is small and serves its purpose for what I need it for.
