Product Description

CONDOR TOOL & KNIFE traces its proud history back to 1787, the year GERB WEYESBERG COMPANY was founded in Solingen, Germany. The quality of the swords, military knives, agricultural tools and household cutlery they manufactured made Solingen the cutlery capital of the world. Over the generations, the world’s largest manufacturer of swords and knives found it necessary to expand operations to other countries to better serve its customers. In 1964, the company formed IMACASA with a new plant in Santa Ana, El Salvador and filled it with state of the art German equipment. Some of the original local employees who were sent to Solingen for extensive training forty years ago are still working in the factory today, turning out the finest quality machetes, shovels and other hand tools.

The handle is huge and the axe is very heavy for the small cutting surface.

That is not to unusual, I have purchased some edged tools that I had to sharpen before using.

If you have more time than money or you just want to whack Zombies, go for the Condor.

I purchased this "Woodworker Axe" About 6 months ago. I purchased it fully intending to use it as it was designed and named to be used.
I did not, like some people seem to have done, purchase it to use to split firewood, or play lumberjack in the backyard.

I have waited to review to see how well it would hold up to use. It has help up quite well.

-- I use the axe 2-3 times a week, it has worked perfectly every time. I use it for general bush craft and traditional, green woodworking.

-- I bought this intending to use it when I didn't want to risk damaging a more expensive tool, however, I find myself carrying it more than my other bush tools, I find myself using it longer than other tools as well.

-- I use it to round split hickory for turning on my pole lathe, I have used it along with my broad axe to hew cedar beams, from 12" diameter trees I cut down, with this very woodworker hand-axe, as I had nothing else to fell the tree with. I have used the hammer side when I had nothing else in the field to drive a wedge to split a hickory log.

For it's intended purpose of green woodworking / bush craft, you will have a very hard time finding something better in this price range.

The handle has a very good shape to it, allows you to swing with power, or precisely chip away with your hand near the head of the axe.
I have noticed no loosening of the head, nor any cracking of the handle.

The weight and balance are great as well.

The edge it came with was not at all bad, for a 32$ hand axe, it was usable... More importantly it was easily honed to perfection, shaving my arm hairs with ease (not recommended, but it shows it was made from at least decent steel).

I consider myself a good judge of edged tools, I have several and I will not keep a bad one around, they are to dangerous. This tool was a disappointment, but not bad. It was dull when it arrived and so I sharpened it. That is not to unusual, I have purchased some edged tools that I had to sharpen before using. Then I noticed the machining on one side is not flat, but is wavy. Then to top it off the metal beside the handle is to thin to suit me. After sharpening it I took it to the wood pile and was pleasantly surprised with how well it cut and how well it handled. I purchased this almost $20.oo less than Condor's suggested price, and I am glad I did, it would not be worth the price they suggest. So, while it handles well, it is not manufactured to the best quality standards. Would I buy another, NO, but I will keep and use this one.

I was so excited waiting for my new woodworker's ax to come in. Till it did. Then I was utterly underwhelmed. BUT, I'm not giving up. Read on for more.

I make wooden bows and do a lot of work on the stave with a hand ax. I LOVE working with axes, the po' man's bandsaw and more. As a teacher of a bow-making class, I was looking for an affordable alternative to the phenomenal Swedish Carpenter's axes for the student's tool kits. At nearly one-third the price, the Condor Woodworker Axe seemed worth a try.

Here's what I don't like:
* It comes with a very thick convex grind, more appropriate for wood splitting. You'd have to thin the cheeks and the edge to even have an all-around chopper. To have a WOODWORKER'S AX, it needs a much finer and flat-ground edge.
* Even if improperly ground for its intended use, it could at least come sharp. It's not. It's dull as a butter knife.
* The handle is Huge. It's thicker by far than the handle on my 3.5 # felling ax. This makes it feel stiff and clumsy and makes it hard to feel the weight of the head. It's also too rounded, making it hard to feel where the blade is.
* The imitation forge marks are pointless. (OK, minor point.) They don't hurt anything, I just wouldn't have done it.

Here's what I do like:
* The price is good
* The steel in the head seems good. I'll know more soon.
* The profile shape of the head is great.
* The weight of the head is great. 1.5# is heavy enough to let the ax work for me, but light enough to handle easily.

Upshot:
The Don't Likes make this ax, as it comes from the box, absolutely useless to me. But, I can fix every one. I thought about sending the ax back, but I want to give it a chance, to discover its potential.
