A great choice for the outdoor enthusiast who has a lot of clearing to do, this brush axe features a precision-ground 10 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.
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.

These are meant for experienced landscapers and tree workers and are likely to be damaged by an inexperienced user.
The idea behind this device is pretty simple: it combines the best aspects of an axe with the better aspects of a machete. To cut through tough vines and brush you need heft but also flexibility. If you are unable to get a good swing at your target you must also have a sharp blade and the ability to be functional with a smaller swingpath. This device shines on all of those accounts.
Like many I have gone through the gamut of tools. In addition to traditional machetes, many with serrated edges and other gimmicks, I have used West Indian cane cutters, parangs, and even debladed a scythe once to use out in the field. I am delighted that Fiskars has finally solved the problem. I wore out my old one and recently bought another one on Amazon.
There are now a variety of other tools out there that you could choose. Gerber makes a clone of this device. I haven't used it but judging by its appearance the main difference is in the handle. Otherwise the tools basically look identical. Bear Grylls has a brushcutter parang that he endorses; it looks fine but I prefer the longer handle and flexibility of the Fiskars tool.
I have also purchased and used the Ka-Bar Black Kukri Machete, and I really like it as a belt mounted utility machete if I am hiking or exploring. But the Fiskars remains my workhorse.
Highest possible recommendation.
I have always carried a machete or a hatchet, both of which are good in their respective specialty (smaller brush that is well watered is good with a machete, and denser branches are good with the hatchet) but lack in each others field.
The Brush axe seems to be the happy combination of the two. It can slice through small material like a machete, and it has the weight and sturdiness to slice through larger branches (Up to calf muscle size) like a small hatchet.
The part where the brush axe really succeeds is its balance and size. Proportionately speaking, it has the overall length of my standard hatchet with a more even weight distribution. So it is very easy to swing in small spots, and is easier to cary than the long machete.
My only minor complain would be the lack of grip on the handle, as others have mentioned it does lack texture to grip. It is the right size and has a nice shape but is slippery when wet. My solution was to wrap it in static tape or tape that you wrap on a baseball bat or tennis racket. Which made it significantly more comfortable and impact resistant.
A nice unit, and I have several comments. The blade has a Teflon style coating, which is fine. However, what annoyed me is Fiskars put a large, hard-to-remove sticker on the blade! Doesn't that negate the special coating for Pete Sake? It took me at least 5 minutes using a new single edge razor, a rag soaked with naphtha, to scrape and rub the sticker off. Good grief. I get irritated with manufacturers who put such sticky labels on things, cause I want to remove them without damaging the product. GRRRR!
The blade is reasonably sharp, but I wanted it sharper. All my axes, knifes, machetes, chisels are kept in razor sharp status-more of a joy to use. A highly recommended tool sharpener for this inside curved blade is "The Puck", made by Lansky. Cost about $8, and has a rough and medium grit side. I used one to further sharpen this tool, and now it meets my sharpness standards. Of course the special coating was ground off the edge itself, but a sharp edge is more important.
The tool is furnished with a plastic holder and handle. Fine when in a tool box or hung on a wall, but I would have preferred a sort of sheath with belt loop for wearing into the brush, so to speak. Oh well, it might be hard to do with this blade shape.
I look forward to doing some nice whacking using this tool.
As with all Fiskars tools it is coated with some kind of Teflon or polymer stuff that does an ouTstanding
job of resisting dirt and rust and moisture. But that means you need to file down the cutting edge of the blade
in order to sharpen it for the first use - otherwise it will feel and function as a blunted edge and you'll be disappointed.
Filing in one direction across each side of blade for a few strokes along length of edge is all you need to do.
Also the handle is way too smooth. For a tool this sharp you must wrap the handle in grip tape. I used some
designed for making pistol handles have better grip or you could you use something like baseball bat or tennis
racket tape maybe. But without the added grip friction I would not use this tool. Too easy to lose control.
