Rated 2 out of 5 by Barbara007 Performs like a toy
Not at all sharp, not enough torque to really make kindling without a lot of extra work, and not much good at chopping roots of long dead trees that litter my landscape. "OK, tell us what you really think about the axe Barbara." I'm not happy with the axe. I may try to sharpen it.

Light weight and easy to use. This is a great tool for some one that goes back country camping and requires a light and easy to use tool.

Rated 4 out of 5 by grraystorm Camp Hatchet -- Coghlan's Pack Axe
Ok, it's a hatchet... not an axe, but I'll let that one slide. I bought this hatchet for camping and hiking. very lite, large head, and fairly well balanced. The cutting edge did have a bit of a burr from the factory so I hit it with a sharpening stone right out of the gate... cutting edge was nice and sharp. I only used the stone to get rid of the burr. Cuts nicely, and the sheath fits very well. The only problem with the sheath is that the belt loop actually causes you to wear it with the cutting edge hanging down, so I simply attached a carabiner to it and hung it on my hiking backpack. Very nice HATCHET overall.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Gentle Ben better than expected
Bought this for a last minute weekend hike just to have a lightweight axe with me. I was surprised at how well it worked. The axe held its edge after a weekend of chopping firewood and building a lean to. I fully expected to be resharpening or throwing it away after my trip but it held up just fine and is in my pack for next time.

Good product although very dull out of the packaging at time of purchase. Once I sharpened it up it was a nice little hatchet.
