    Amazing Maul
    Picked this up on a whim because it looked and felt like such a high quality tool; way better than anything found in a box store by far. When I got it home I was amazed at how well it worked. It tackled anything I put in front of it during a 2 hourwork session. Yeah, it's heavy, but that's part of what makes it work. It far and away exceeded my expectations and I've zero doubt I willhave this for a long time to come.

    You'd think it was gas operated!!
    I've never split wood in my life until today. This maul is worth every penny. I was concerned that it may be too light but it went through pine and aspen in no time. I split wood for 3 hours before I got tired. Mostly because it was so much fun to use! The collar on the handle is handy but be careful. Hit it just right and it'll give you a zinger!!

    Pretty good light hatchet
    I have been using this little Axe/Hatchet around my property in East Texas mainly cutting Sweet Gum trees sprouting up. It is a handy size and weight for easy and convenient carry around my property so, I am more likely to have it with me than a bigger heavier axe. That being said, in general, I find this axe to be too light for general light clean up work on my property. The axe head itself seems to be a bit soft as it dulls too fast IMHO on soft wood. The axe/hatchet itself is a good ... read more compromise between convenience in size and weight and cutting power and efficiency. Above 2" diameter soft wood, this axe will struggle a bit but get the job done. Smaller material will cut in a good swing or two. The balance and dynamics using it are very good. The shape of the head (pattern) provides a very good 'bite' into stuff. I do wish the head was a bit heavier for more cutting power. I also find the cutting edge seems to dull a bit faster than some of my other axes so, that is a bit disappointing but, not out of line for how I see an axe like this being used. For light yard work and general light camping, it is a good choice with its balanced size and weight providing a good blend of functionality for limited work in recreational or backyard settings. The head pattern is a good one for someone new to axes who may not have the best 'aim' since the broad blade and cutting edge really sticks into the wood and doesn't slip off or deflect too easily. For more serious work such as limbing when cutting firewood and similar activities, a heavier and harder head is needed with more cutting power and a longer lasting cutting edge.

    Great hatchet, gives you a lot of bang for your buck.
    I have owned this hatchet for about two weeks now and I am pleasantly surprised with it. I purchased this to split kindling and small pieces of wood and it has done more than fulfill it's requirements. The only problems I have with this axe is that the steel is slightly soft and the handle will damage with even the slightest contact. Overall, I recommend this product for everyone from your average Joe to your firewood supplier.

    Very nice hatchet
    Owning dozens of hatchets and small axes I'm very impressed with the cutting ability and handle feel of this hatchet. The handle is very comfortable with the fawns foot swell on both planes giving security in your swing. The blade is of great quality and is Mfg. by one of the best axe makers in the world (Ochsenskoph). For a light hatchet/camp axe I highly recommend this one. Very good value also !

    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.

    Great for making kindling
    I purchased a PA20 splitting hatchet to keep a pile of dry kindling on hand. After splitting logs with a hydroalic splitter I find that the PA20 splitting hatchet is a very convenient tool for splitting a few pieces of fire wood further to keep a bucket of kindling on hand during the winter season. Having this tool keeps me prepared to starti a fire in our boiler fast and easy in the event that the fire burns out before I get home from a long day at work. Thanks to Stihl for the great ... read more quality, and thanks to Milts Sales and Service for the large selection of supplies, and great customer service they provide.

    Great tool
    I just bought this tool and I have been use it for almost 2 months, i use it for very tricky rounds and it works great. Perfect ergonomics, nice balanced tool and very nice hickory handle, I think that the touch of Ochsenkopf axe company it's definitely obvious.. I'm very happy with the attachment system and the steel overstrike plate protection on the handle. Beautiful and functional tool, my conclusion is that this Axe do the job easier.

    This axe best i ran across
    I bought this after useing axe's from big box stores they where not funnest tools to use. I found this axe to be more effective and i got way less muscle aches after use than other axes. I had taken this axe to a knife dealer to put the sharpest edge he could.( sharp enough just light touch would make you bleed).after cutting 2 cords of wood still holds great edge (i cut black cherry tree and white oak) . The metal colar realy helps it on over strikes. It spit through every thing i thrown at it ... read more logs over 36 inchs.

    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.

    Nice axe!
    Another great Stihl product! Makes limbing trees a breeze without a ton of effort. Feels good in the hands and holds an edge for awhile. Only two complaints I have is that first the factory edge is way to dull, it took a lot of filing to make it correct for the application. Second the sheath that comes with it is a joke, it lasted a whole two days, you would think that a company that makes great products would have a great sheath for the edge. But other than that, great product!
