Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs work straight out of the box first of all let me start off by saying this a great forrest axe, jack of all trades master of none. Also i may add that i cut a full cord of blocks and turned it into kindling with this very axe. However, the handle comes with a thick red dipped paint on the end that literally has beads of dry paint which has already cracked, the lacquer is slippery and generally no ta pleasing or a natural feeling on your hands especially if your out there swinging 3 plus hours straight. i used commercial grade furniture striper, and removed that paint and lacquer ( took 2 coats). i was able to make the fawns foot a bit more pronounced and rounded with a rasp and then i went up the grits on my sander and brought it to 150 (my favourite texture for hand tools). finally i oiled it up with tung and teak oil. Better looking, better feeling, better axe. BUT KEEP IN MIND, for 30-40$ more, you could buy a hand forged sweedish steel axe that already has a handle with no red paint :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all around Axe....... After several months of using this Axe I'm am thoroughly impressed. I use it when Felling trees to drive wedges and it's great for limbing. It's always by my side while working in trees. The protection sleeve makes me worry less about an over strike and the weight is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 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...
