Q:Why is it called an axe and not a machete?
by|Jan 23, 2022
4 Answers
Answer This Question

A:  I have bought several for family & I always get it wrong when trying find it also. My advice - tell your friend Steve Fiscars wants you to use two hands so you don't cut your arm off. Maybe - Just live w/ it.

    A:  Axe because it is a smaller version of a bush axe used by farmers

    by|Jan 27, 2022

      A:  I work as a land surveyor and use this tool daily in various situations it out performs machete in all aspects. I would say blade thickness and ability to chop through larger diameter brush with ease comparable to a hatchet makes it called an axe. A machete is a specific shape of blade, ex. Kuhkuri, billhook, sickle referring to blade shape. 

      by|Jan 25, 2022

        A:  It is not for chopping felled wood it will cut down 2” thick limbs but once down an axe is the tool to use to chop camp fire length logs

          Q:Is the blade removable? Is a replacement blade available?

          Answer This Question

          A:  Hello Mike, Thank you for your recent inquiry with The Home Depot. The Fiskars Chopping Brush Axe (202681658) does not have a removable blade. We appreciate your business and look forward to serving you in the future.

          by|Dec 13, 2021

            A:  Does not appear to be removable, but the blade is not on other machetes or axes. You sharpen it as needed. As long as you aren't hitting rocks and metal it should hold an edge.

              Q:why is it so dull out of the box? do I need to take it to a sharpener?

              Answer This Question

              A:  Thank you for contacting Fiskars. The blade is not supposed to have a knife edge to it as the weight of the axe and the swing is what does the work. If you would like a sharper edge you are certainly welcome to sharpen it more with an axe sharpener or a diamond cut file.

              by|Apr 6, 2021

                A:  I believe it is due to it being a production line item. It went through the line and got it's "grinding" and went on to packing. That grinder wears and it must be tweaked and adjusted from time to time. YOUR unit cane through at a time when the factory grinder was most in need of adjustment. I did not even think of that. I got my file and touched it up as a normal operation. I am sure I can do a better job of sharpening than a production line machine so I did it.

                by|Apr 6, 2021

                  A:  Mine was not sharp. I used a metal file and sharpened it. Doesn’t have to have a knifes edge, the weight does a lot of the work for you.

                  by|Apr 6, 2021

                    A:  It definitely could use some sharpening!

                      Q:Will This Chopping Brush Axe cut through Tree Roots in the ground?

                      Answer This Question

                      A:  Yes

                      by|Sep 1, 2020

                        A:  Probably if you want to fill the blade

                        by|Mar 7, 2021

                          A:  Smaller ones, yes. Anything larger than a mans thumb may get difficult. The hook really helps with this use. I’d recommend Taking it to a sharpener and having the back of the hook sharpened into a useable edge.

                          by|Oct 23, 2020

                            A:  It can, but it’s better to use the hook to pull upwards against the root. Also there isn’t an edge on earth it will stay sharp through an experience like that.

                            by|Jun 16, 2020

                              A:  Thank you for your inquiry. We do not suggest using the brush axe for chopping in the ground as if you hit a rock the blade could chip.

                                Works good. Only used it twice about 15 minutes each time. Did a good job. It's a great deal for the price. If it had a full tang and better sheath if you can call it a sheath I would have given it five stars I also would have paid up for those features. A good tool nonetheless.

                                This Fiskars Brush AXE was NOT sharp, not even close. Luckily the blade is quality enough and I have the means to sharpen. 2nd time buying this from Home Depot and will probably be my last unless I can buy it pre-sharpened. Why sell an unsharpened brush axe, sort of defeats the purpose, right?

                                More functional than a straight blade machete
                                Great for keeping up with Florida undergrowth. The hook end saves you from bending over as far to move cuttings around.

                                It arrives coated and not sharp, not even dull, more like blunt. It will not be usable in that condition, it has to be sharpened. Its kind of big and clumsy. Its hard to cut things near the ground level without the bill getting in the way. Not impressed so far.
