    Best Axe Ever!
    I bought this axe because my local dealer didn't have the Pro Splitting Axe in stock. Best axe I have ever owned. No other is even close. Splits smaller logs easily. The locking mechanism is impressive and you never feel the head move. The handle guide is study and large enough to protect from over strikes. I usually have buyers remorse but not on this axe. One of the best purchases I have ever made. I bought the Pro Splitting axe also and love it also.

    Awesome Forestry Axe!!!
    Wow what an axe, size, weight, balance and a Great 5 piece head design. I can't see this hickory handle ever breaking with this new long steel sleeve attached or the head ever coming off with this 5 piece system. Stihl did it again...one of a kind and another awesome product made in the USA. Thank you Stihl...

    High quality axe!
    I just finished my itnitial use of the Forestry Axe. I used it to assist my power splitter in finishing off pieces which don't completly split during the normal cycling of the hydraulic splitter. The balance and ease of use are great. I also used it to split some pieces and it is very effective although I didn't purchase it for use as a splitting maul. I plan to take it to the woods for removing small limbs and branches and to set plastic wedges. The shorter overall length (27") is very nice for ... read more striking accuracy and seems to make it very efficient. While not a cheap tool, it is built to last and is very well made. The steel sleeve is a very nice feature for those of us who might tend to overstrike once in a while.

    Good head weight and the handle is the right length.
    I've used my hatchet now for about 8 years has worked great for everything. Could've been sharper when it was new. The handle has taken some damage and I would like get a new handle and put it on my self is there a way I can do this with out going to the dealer. The dealer want to repair it for me for warranty purposes. I take care of my tools and know how to install a new handle, please help me in any way.

    An excellent axe.
    This axe is extremely well built. I had to do a minor amount of sharpening when I got it, but it took a razor sharp edge and holds it well. The shape is good for general purposes, but leans towards chopping more than splitting. It's a good size for my needs; Small enough to fit in a backpack for camping, but big enough to take with me car camping or to process wood at the house. I haven't used it a huge amount, but it's holding up well so far.

    perfect tool for the outdoorsman
    Excellent handling and striking force. Used it to take down our Christmas tree this year. Perfect easy chopping even with one arm swing do to rotator cuff tear in shoulder. Highly recommended!

    Interesting design
    Thin bit cut deep and clean on green birch. Ample striking surface for pounding soft wedges. Choke up to extended shoulder to split kindling for good balance. Seems to hold a decent edge so far. Easy to carry in an aluminum scabbard.

    The ultimate splitting tool
    I have finally found the ultimate ax for splitting hardwood. In over than 50 years splitting firewood this is IT. Heavy enough to split large cuts, but well balanced to conserve effort. The head penetrates well without sticking, therefore, reducing number of strikes needed to complete split. No vibration noticed, just a joy to use.

    Very functional.
    burning firewood for years never a machine log splitter hand splitting since I can remember. have bought brand new splitting axe and broke within less than two chords never once hit the neck of the shaft on a log split handle all the way up not very happy. but took the stehl axe out in the first couplei hits I was completely blown away impressive control accuracy power

    KaPOW!
    I had to re-learn how to split wood with this axe. Im so used to dropping a heavy swing and this monster just plows through Pinion and Ash like they aren't even there. even splitting unseasoned rounds is a breeze. best axe I have ever used.

    Perfect hand saw for trimming limbs.
    I've had my PS 60 Pruning Saw for the last five years and it is still as sharp as when I bought it! It has a very comfortable hand grip and seems to be just at the right angle to make cutting almost effortless. The saw carrier is well made and easy to wear on your belt. If you don't want to get the chainsaw out to cut small branches, get yourself one of these,it's a real time saver.
