I have used a few splitting axes including some wedges and this axe is amazing... but...

Pros: The butt end of the handle is a whole lot bigger than the picture on the site. The picture on the site looks like it was taking with a fish-eye camera and the butt of the handle looks tiny. You can tell by the lanyard hole angle in the handle in the picture. The butt of the handle is darn near as big as the neck, a lot of wood to hold on to. This is the first axe Ive ever split wood with that I didnt need to wear gloves, as with each split the handle never rang or stung my hands. Every swing split a two foot log on end on the first turn. I split Pine, and Mesquite. The wedge angle is perfect because its A CURVED RAMP WEDGE not a straight angle. The curved part of the wedge is buffed to a mirror shine. You can easily see your reflection. They have a great design.

Cons: The head of the axe was loose after the fourth split. I am currently sending this back to them to get it repaired. It looks like it might have been just a bad fit of the handle to the head. A round donut shaped spike wedge was used to tighten the handle to the head. I am suspecting that the forging on the inside of the head has an air pocket that was created during the forging process. That would explain the bad fit. I would like to remove the handle and view it but I am awaiting their return directions. I will do another review on how this turns out. I will let everybody know how they treat this type of issue. I dont want a refund, I want a working Splitting Axe.

I gave this axe a 5 stars because I would buy this axe again no problem not even the loose head return issue because of the GREAT wedge action on the split. Just waiting to see how they handle this repair issue. - Scott
