    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 of a kind and another awesome product made in the USA. Thank you Stihl...

    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.

    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.

    Mighty mite!
    I bought this to carry in my backpack or pants pocket while working on mountain bike trails. Does a great job on anything 1-3" when a chainsaw isn't handy. This saw has saved me several trips back to the parking lot to get my chainsaw.

    Almost as good as their chain saws
    I bought this saw about 2 years ago for pruning limbs of Crape Myrtles and other shrubs and trees. It has a good heavy solid feel to it that fits the hand nicely. It folds closed like a pocket knife to make it compact and to protect you and the blade. Like most other pruning saws, the curved blade and a pull cutting stroke make this a very fast cutting saw. I keep it in my truck all the time just in case, you never know when you will need it. Stihl also sells the file to sharpen these saws but ... read more it does take some patience and skill to get right so just buy a new blade or new saw when this one dulls and practice on the old one, then test it against the new one. All in all you can't go wrong with this saw.

    None better
    Pay the price and get this maul. When your out there beating your brains out with a cut rate maul and jarring your teeth out with poor results you will only then truly appreciate this tool!

    Don't be scared of price, well worth it.
    From the moment you pick this maul up it becomes apparent this is a well crafted tool. I am currently splitting 18 inch wide dry ash rounds. With an old tire around them these large rounds are reduced to small pieces in no time. After splitting firewood for the past 25+ years I can easily say this is one of the best tools I have used. Excellent product.

    Outstanding Axe with Excellent Craftsmanship
    I recently purchased this axe. The first thing I noticed was the quality. I used it to split 24" to 36" red oak logs without issue. The axe exceeded my expectation as it split the wood with no problem virtually blowing the wood apart. The design allows for the axe to power its way through the wood. The quality of the steel and the excellent edge allow for this axe to out perform any other axe I have ever used. This axe consistently powers its way through anything that I have thrown at it. The ... read more quality of the axe is beyond comparison. Everything from the hickory handle, the overstrike protection and the craftsmanship of the blade put this axe in its own class. Another incedible product from Stihl.

    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.

    This axe is amazing!
    After breaking the third handle on my hardware store splitting maul, I stopped by my local Stihl Dealer and buought the "Pro Splitting Axe" to complement my PA50 splitting axe. This thing is amazing! Goes in like an axe and the weight of a maul to carry it through the nastiest of wood. Beautifully crafted and indistructable. The last axe you will ever buy!

    great survival tool
    Ive had mine for 4 years now. I used it all the time doing tree work, and now keep it in my truck for use on limbs keeping salvage at bay. I did break the tip off of it. I'm sure that I over worked it. I've used it on tree limbs, pvc pipes, tires, the list goes on. Love it!

    Nice Pocket Saw
    This is nice saw to have for those little prunning duties I have where bringing out a chain saw is not needed. Had it for awhile and still sharp and works great.

    Great Little Saw
    I bought this saw from our local Stihl dealer. I thought I would take it camping and backpacking but as it turns out, I use it around the house to cut small branches when pruning tress, etc. The blade cuts very efficiently. It does back well for camping too.
