Product Description

Product Description

A great choice for the outdoor enthusiast who has a lot of clearing to do, this brush axe features a precision-ground 9 inch steel blade with a rust-resistant, low-friction coating to rip through underbrush and wood with speed and ease. The tough FiberComp handle is lightweight for easy handling and multiplied swing speed, yet still stronger than steel for lasting value. The insert-molded design means the blade won’t loosen or separate from the handle. Includes a safety sheath for convenient storage and transportation.

Amazon.com

The Fiskars brush axe is a unique tool that combines the attributes of a hatchet and a machete, making the brush axe an ideal multi-purpose tool for all kinds of cutting tasks. The 9-inch cutting blade is made of high quality drop-forged steel for maximum durability and sharpness, and is also treated with a non-stick coating for smooth cuts and rust resistance. The blade has also been insert-molded into the handle to ensure that it will never get loose or separate. Additionally, the handle is made from a unique Nyglass material--a strong and lightweight nylon/fiberglass composite that provides long-lasting durability. The Fiskars brush axe also includes a blade sheath for safe storage and transportation.

I am a volunteer with the National Park Service and spend a great deal of time cutting invasive exotic vines and other noxious plants to try to save mature woodlands.

I used a new tool today to beat down some Chinese Porcelain Berry vines and it worked extremely well. To date, my tools of choice have been a 22" machete - for English Ivy, Winter Creeper, Multiflora Rose and tall Japanese Knotweed, and a 12-inch bow saw for anything over 1.5 inches in diameter. I also use a weed cutter (grass whip) for secondary knotweed cutting, etc.

I have found that the difficulty with Porcelain Berry is that it hangs away from native plants, is swingy and poorly supported. It's often so dense that one can't get close enough with hand pruners or loppers to make much progress. And the machete requires tedious, exhausting and repeated hacking. Today I used my brand new Fiskars brush axe on it, expensive at $39 through Amazon, but worth every darned penny.

It's a bit shorter than a machete, very light and well balanced. The handle is high impact plastic and absorbs shock well, the blade is short enough to be relatively safe, and the blade is strong, anti-corrosion coated and takes a good edge. But most of all, the downward pointing hook serves (similar to a grass hook, brush hook, bill hook or ditch bank - which are much heavier and unwieldy) to keep hanging vines and springy arms of shrubs from sliding off the cutting edge. The rounded point of the hook also impacts the ground before the blade, which helps to preserve the edge of the blade.

This tool cuts through vines up to 1 inch like a hot knife through butter! I reckon it is twice as effective as the machete for swinging growth and 4 times as fast as a lopper - plus being much lighter than a lopper.

Excellent quality, period. Having read all the reviews before purchasing, I can simply say - I agree. It is Fiskars quality, it is balanced and the curved nose holds onto the branches and vines which would normally slip away from the blade. This will last the rest of my life.

My one complaint - what is described as a sheath is not what I or likely you would think of as a sheath. It is hard plastic with a plastic snap to hold the tool in it. It is great for hanging on retail racks. It is a severe disappointment if you are expecting something to attach to your belt to safely carry when not in use when you are in the field. It is not possible to use it in this manner.

Bottom line - if you don't need the sheath for carrying and safety, then buy this tool. If you do need a sheath for carrying and you value safety, then buy the Gerber version of this tool. They are the same tool and same company.

Have fun - chop, chop.

This was a great tool...until it broke and flew hundreds of feet into the woods. I used it to cut Asiatic Bittersweet and Porcelain Berry vines. It was great! It really did a nice job of cutting those vines. Good balance, sharp blade, quality shape to cut and pull vines away.

One day, I was cutting vines and the blade broke right off the handle. It was bizarre because there were no prior signs of damage. There were no cracks and the blade did not feel loose. So for the love of Crumb Cake, be careful with this tool if you purchase one.

I am happy to report that after I sent an email (including pictures of the broken tool) to Fiskars' consumer affairs department, they said they would forward the pictures to their quality control department. They were very helpful and quick to respond.

BEFORE you buy check where it is from!!! I have owned 2 of these. The first was made in FINLAND and was INDESTRUCTIBLE!!! It was drop forged and came with an edge that could shave the hair off your arm! Only reason I had to replace it was because it was "lost" (more likely stolen). New ones from Fiskars are made in CHINA out of weak stamped steel and better suited for spreading butter than cutting wood! I'm busy right now but am going to make a more complete review later. In short, FINLAND=AWESOME/BUY, CHINA=JUNK/DON'T BUY!

I have poweline trail "woods" behind my home, which is basically comprised of thick brush, saplings, and oak trees. Like most of my neighbors, I wanted to clear the brush to about 30' back from my property line to improve appearance.

This tool is amazing. Well balanced and just the right combination of heft and length. It takes a few minutes to get used to it, as initially you will not expect it to cut cleanly through up to 1" diameter branches with a single swing, which it can and often does. You can also chop through larger diameter branches with a few swings using a hatchet methodology. I was able to clear 'about' 3,000 square feet of thick brush in just a few hours' time, and I wasn't trying to break any records in doing so.

A note of caution: considering what this does to branches, etc., you do need to exercise care or you could easily get seriously injured. Do not hold anything close to where you will be chopping; maintain a good footing and keep your children clear of your work area when using. If you're getting tired, stop. All of which should be common sense ...
