Here's my new favorite. Sucks for cutting down trees, heavy as hell, but great for splitting chunks, and various BFH uses.

I have an Estwing camp axe. It seems like good stuff but doesn't feel right when using it. Maybe a balance issue, never pinned down why.

If you had your little kids ax and had to do what I did the morning before the meet......you would still be there.

You would have a hell of a time driving tent stakes in with that chainsaw.

That "kids Axe" was not the best axe around by far, but it did the job just fine. It didn't weigh 4lbs either. It had way more travel miles than use miles on it. Spent the majority of the time forgotten about in the bottom of my Pannier.

If I thought that ax was a joke, I would have not traveled 50 miles yesterday to see if it was still there.....

It was a fine ax indeed. When I swung that thing with all my might at that lil' stick in the parking lot it took an enormous divot out of the pavement when I missed. A lesser ax would have chipped and dulled much worse than your lil' ax did!

...I'll buy you a new one.....
