This is one of the best hatchets that I have used, and is a almost a necessity when you are making a fire. The design of this hatchet makes it easy to chop about four inch think wood in a single split; with the head of the axe quite heavy, in contrast to the light-weight handle. The handle is sturdy and the anti-slip grip actually works keeping your hand secure, with the blade sliding out of the wood and not becoming stuck. After using it the first time at a friends cabin to chop wood, it was still extremely sharp and had a good edge. Over-all this is a great hatchet for anyone looking for an all-purpose one.
