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 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.

First off all, if you visit Fiskars website about this product [...], you will see that the use and purpose of this tool is not for splitting wood, but for felling trees. I have only felled trees with axes greater than 27 inches in length in the past, so I was fairly skeptical about using such a short felling ax.
My skepticism was tamed when I took it up to my property in Idaho one weekend to clear some land of live and dead trees that needed to be chopped down. It didn't take much effort to swing this small ax, but I was very surprised to see how deep this cut with minimal effort. I didn't get worn out so quickly like I do when swinging a longer ax. I found that my endurance lasted much longer with this short handle than with a longer one.
On top of being able to last longer and cut with such a sharp blade, my wife, who is 5' 2", was able to use this thing very well! It is a great product that both her and I are able to use and not compromise the ability to fell trees quickly.
The blade on this maintained its edge very well, and it was not hard to keep sharp. I sharpened it regularly to keep its edge, but looking back, I didn't really need to. Another feature of which I was skeptical is the hollow handle. I thought that there would be a lot of vibration in the fiberglass handle while chopping, but it was just the opposite. there was no vibration, and the smooth handle had plenty of grip- even in sweaty hands-, but didn't give me blisters.
This is a tool well worthy of five starts! I highly recommend this product from the most experienced to the least experienced.
I'm about-to-pop pregnant and my husband works a lot, so I needed something that I could use to get some work done outside. One of our trees was struck by lightning, split, and fell into the neighbor's yard. We didn't have an axe, chainsaw, or anything else that could get the job done. I ordered this and started hauling the tree out piece by piece.
My husband has had the opportunity to use it as well and he was impressed though he'd probably benefit from a longer one.
Also, the cover. I didn't realize it was in the yard and ran it over with our gigantic passenger van. Nothing happened to it.
I can't wait to buy a Fiskars shovel.
