Ive Killed over 23 trees with it, Chased a Coyote in the woods with it, and Been through Hell with it. Its so far still with me, Unfortunately.
This fella Loves to take a beating and still holds up. I dont understand it though, i got it back when it was 6.88 at walmart. Now they are like 10-12$ easy. I didnt like at the time how Its edge Was as dull as a hammer, You need to own a Grinder to successfully fix this Problem. Its Got a rubber handle and a Steel head (i like to call it Pakistani Pot Metal.) Along with a Solid Steel Spine. The head also features a Hanging Notch in the Head to hang up in the garage or shed or What have ya, Mine's hanging in the hallway.
The Curve of the Steel Rod that connects the Head to the Rubber handle makes the Hatchet a little Awkward to hold, But you will find the Proper grip In time.
I have been waiting quite some time for it to tear up so i can buy a new hatchet, preferably different and better model, But, it just wont Break.
Sad, I know. But this little guys Been through alot and i must say he Is Pretty Crummy looking, but he still does the job. The deal here is, that the Head Rusts pretty fast under Normal to low humidity. Its almost like its iron...
Not to mention its lead Coating which gives it that Gray look to its head is Completely gone on mine. He lived out in the woods stuck in a tree for A whole fall and winter and partial summer. Still cuts And holds its edge, It justs rusts to darn fast.
So is this guy durable? Yes, Its very durable.Read more ›
Yes, they come with no edge and require a few minutes with a file... what else would you expect at this price point? Military exchanges (AAFES, NEX) still sell these for 6 bucks. You can drop 120 bucks on a Gransfors Bruks hatchet and it will stay sharper a bit longer or buy 20 of these. Are there any outstanding features? Yes... it's the most inexpensive axe that chops and hammers. Why pay more? Nuff said.
The good news: it is definitely easier to chop things with than the knife-and-stone approach. The rubber handle offers some protection to the hand if you're going to be chopping for a while.
The bad news: of course it's a small axe, you need to keep sharpening it with a wetstone or equivalent tool because it loses its edge pretty quickly, and... it weighs a lot. It is, in fact, the heaviest single item in my pack.
So of course it is a trade-off, like many things in life. Is it worth carrying the extra weight in order to have the convenience of a small axe? It's useless for chopping down a mature tree, of course, but it is useful for taking off branches and splitting a dead log for tinder. If you need to make shelter from branches before the sun sets, this axe can save over an hour in comparison to the knife-and-stone approach - which is an hour that can be spent making a fire, boiling water, or maybe (if you are lucky) catching a fish for dinner.
UPDATE: Now that I find myself carrying my companions' supplies in addition to my own, I'm more concerned about weight than formerly. 65 pounds is enough to convince me that I'm doing enough for my cardiovascular fitness. Consequently, I now carry a wire saw rather than the axe featured in this review. I can do pretty much anything with the saw that I could do with the axe, but it weighs only a handful of grams, thus cutting down usefully on the total weight of my pack. The axe is now relegated to the trunk of my car for "just in case" moments.

For the price I can't complain. It feels very solid and has a good weight. I've used it to hack at some pretty big roots when digging in a planted area and it did just fine.Published 3 days ago by J. Webb
The blade is too dull to really do all that much with it. I've had to use it more like a wedge with a rubber mallet. Just expect that you'll need to sharpen it.Published 5 days ago by aspahn
Exactly what I've come to expect from Coleman. This too is an Asian import, but Coleman obviously has higher standards for their vendors, and I hope to get good service with itPublished 7 days ago by Kindle Customer
It's a cheap camp axe. It works but doesn't really hold an edge. Not hard to sharpen or anything but you'll sharpen this one more than some other brands. Read morePublished 10 days ago by Peter M. Kilkenny
Careful when using it. The handle is short and takes some getting used to. It's a hatchet, not an axe!!!Published 11 days ago by Vivian
