Product Description

Product Description

The all-purpose design of the X15 Chopping Axe makes felling trees quick and easy. Like every X-Series Hatchet or Axe, the X15 combines perfected weight distribution, advanced blade geometry, an ultra-sharp edge and virtually unbreakable design to maximize your performance. This combination of features allows the blade to bite three times deeper when chopping. With more blade penetration on each swing, you can chop more wood in less time, with less effort and hand strain.

From the Manufacturer

An unwieldy, oversized axe tends to make its user a little nervous - nothing like the thought of an emergency room visit to suck the fun out of felling and limbing trees, eh? That's why Fiskars has designed this chopping axe (Fiskars Chopping Axe 23.5-Inch #7857) with a shorter, more controllable 23-1/2-inch handle. Easier to swing, lets you land the head exactly where you want it. Plus, the hardened steel blade starts out sharp, stubbornly holds its edge, and chews quickly through flinty heartwood with help from the friction-reducing non-stick coating. Better still, Fiskars cures the dangerous problem of loosening axe heads with an insert-molded design locks the blade in place so it won't ever unhitch itself from the durable, weatherproof handle. Includes a sturdy sheath for safe storage and transportation. And the Fiskars lifetime warranty of performance excellence.

They have this listed as a chopping Axe. I would call it a Felling Axe or a Low-weight felling Axe. And it is the best one I have ever used. I purchased this Axe to replace a stolen Stihl felling Axe and I love it. For easy and efficient felling, cutting and limbing it can not be beat and it works nicely for driving felling wedges. At under half the price of a Stihl you would be crazy not to get one. I would suggest buying the Fiskars sharpener with it. It makes keeping the edge on the Axe sharp and pretty much idiot proof.

I had this axe less than a month and on Christmas eve right when I needed it the most, the handle shattered and the head went flying while I was splitting a small piece of firewood for kindling.
It was a good strike just like the 2 before it but the 3rd strike and it was OUT!
I liked this axe until it broke. It was light and accurate, easy to use.
I wish I could post a photo to show what happened to this "virtually unbreakable" axe

The problem is it was given to me as a gift and I'm not sure how to get a refund!
Fiskars, I would like a replacement please!

Edit: I sent a photo of the broken axe to Fiskars and they sent me a replacement.
Great customer service Fiskars, Thanks!

the fiskars chopping axe with the 24 inch overall length ,is a good size and weight axe head ,with a handle you can drive a truck over and not break it in two...it is out of the box razor sharp and has the correct angle that you can see on the blade to sharpen the bit,,,keep it in the plastic axe head cover or make a good leather cover,, till your ready to use it and put the cover back when your through...for a camp axe you can split 4 to 6 in.or bigger soft rounds into smaller pieces fairly easy,,just remember,,the shorter the axe handle,if your gonna split wood,the lower to the ground you need to be,squatting or on your knees in some cases,,,this will keep your shins and the front of your leg from getting hurt..always bring the axe straight down on your target..not where you might swing through if you miss,, you will love this Fiskars Axe,,it's made in Finland,,good steel,,,and the handle is hollow,,you can store fishing line and lures,a pocket knife,small sharpening file,,fire starter ferrosium steel,,etc,,make a plug or duct tape the end and then put this axe in your back pack and head out to the hills,,it is sharp enough to clean a small trout or an elk, your choice,,,A++++++++++AXE...BC

My review title says it all. I picked this up after researching Fiskars axes rather extensively(which might explain my forthcoming bank of knowledge even though I only own the X15). When it arrived, I had to test it out and I did so by taking the branch off a tree in one swing. I didn't sharpen the ax beforehand and it was not a full swing. Then I tried a thicker branch on the same tree and it was only a few more swings. I knew felling the trees I needed to remove was going to be fun after that and was it ever. I am itching to fell more just for fun if anyone has any work to complete. lol. A few things I will note that I have read from the lesser reviews here and other forums on the web with competent woodsman who have tried even the best of axes.

1) Leave the factory edge on your ax. It is there to withstand the work you are going to put the ax through. Other posters here have mentioned adding a second bevel or making the edge super fine. Do not be surprised when your ax fails if you mess with it---chips, roll overs, or even rusts because you removed the protective coating.

2) You can avoid all the above issues by picking up the Fiskars sharpener made specifically for the brand's axes(if you have no sharpening skills). It comes sharp "out of the box", but by adding the sharpener, you can be a complete moron when it comes to sharpening and never ruin the edge. The metal is softer than you might expect so it will chip and dull quickly if you hit the ground/a rock...but if you put a good edge on it, that will last as long as it is hitting your target---hopefully wood or maybe a zombie if we're that unlucky.

3) While it is called a chopping ax, I would not use it to split wood(what some call chopping).

This is a rather good axe and it's nice to use. I used it as a felling axe to clear some paths in the forest.

I used it to replace a very very old steel-head axe with a hickory handle (the head kept coming off and I don't have to tools to hang it again.) Being new it was nice and sharp, didn't get stuck too much. It was a bit shorter than I expected -- my old axe was a 25- or 26-inch, so 24 seemed a tad short whereas 28-inch seemed too long. Going from a hickory handle to synthetic, the feeling is not the same when it hits, it gave a much harsher feeling in my arms. It was also a tad lighter than my old axe. Fine, I had to adjust a bit, I got over it and the result is that I cut some hard old wood faster than before and it was a lot of fun.

This axe is AMAZING!!! I thought it might be a bit on the short side for chopping down dead trees, but it's not: It's just right. You can get a nice solid swing with it. It's length makes it long enough to get power and speed but not get caught on other trees nearby. The blade is very sharp and stays sharp. It's a harder metal, so it keeps its edge longer, which is what you want in chopping wood, I think. I got the Fiskars Axe and Knife Sharpener, too, which seems to do a good job. Fantastic!
