Yes it’s hardened. I am a carpenter and have used Estwing framing hammers for over 35 years. The steel will get a dark patina to it over time with use, but it Will rust and needs to be maintained if not used regularly. This is a Great size ax.
Because it's 10" shorter?
Don't know but the feel is good and it has a good penatration into the palms. I've also used it for kindilen
Hand sharpen in a circular motion like any axe. Come out like a razor.
Not full tang Steel all way througn. According to Estwing :"All our tools are manufactured from 1055 special bar quality steel, heat-treated to ASME safety requirements, which is 45-60 Rockwell C Standard. There is no fiberglass in the handle. The handle on the long handled axe is hollowed out, otherwise it would be too heavy to lift. It is in 2 pieces. The axe handle is pressed into the tubing. The tool then is heat treated where the axe handle and tubing are permanently bonded."
