- Familiarity: I've used it several times
It gets the job done on a budget. It works fine and there's nothing wrong with it its just going to take a little more effort than a better quality hatchet. For car camping is fine but after hiking all day the weight and extra effort add up.
Perfect for the price
We use this for car camping. Split wood easily.
OK for the price
Its not the best but will do the job. The plastic handle will slide a little if it gets hot from sitting in the sun, its weighted kind of strange and it doesn't come very sharp. For the price I can't complain.
Cheap but effective
No, this isn't as good as an SOG or Gerber, but it's also 1/4 the price of even their cheapest options. You'll want to sharpen it with a file as it comes from the factory without much of an edge. It also doesn't come with a cover so prepare to make or buy one.
But for $12.95 it's great for basecamp and your wallet.
