Size: 14' X7 7850 Hatchet
Hatchets just don't come better than this. It will take a very sharp edge and hold it all day long. It's not a splitting axe. It isn't an axe at all. What it is though is a tough as nails hatchet that will get any job done that a hatchet is meant to do. If you want a splitting axe get a Fiskars brand splitting axe. If you want a chopping axe Fiskars makes one of those that is also 5 stars. If you want to clear brush on your favorite ATV trail or you want to chop kindling for your campfire this hatchet can't be beat. Just don't expect it to be something it isn't.

Size: 14' X7 7850 Hatchet
I was gifted an X7 for my birthday and initially wasn't sure if it would be any good. I've been a devoted Wetterlings Wildlife Hatchet fan and have also used Gransfors Bruks and didn't think that this synthetic Star Wars looking thing would hold a candle to them. Boy was I wrong! I've had this hatchet now for about 6 months and have used it to chop everything from dead pine and fir to hard rock maple and it's performed fabulously. Let me break down my experience with this hatchet....

Chopping- Not only will the X7 outchop my razor sharp Wetterlings Wildlife Hatchet, its performance approaches that of my 19.5" Wetterlings Bushcraft Axe. So many chips fly when I chop with this thing that I have to wear safety glasses, no kidding.

Splitting- This hatchet excels at splitting due to the wedged-shape head on it. This makes it a great kindling axe.

Comfort- This is what surprised me the most. The new rubberized handle is extremely comfortable, even more so than my wood handled hatchets. It also reduces shock, and since I've used it heavily over the last 6 months chopping kindling for our wood stove I can say with confidence that it is very comfortable to use for hours on end. It's also easy to choke up on for close tasks.

Durability- I called Fiskars and they told me that the steel on these is drop forged stainless with a double-hardened bit. I asked what type of steel they use but was unable to get an answer. That said, Fiskars has had some problems on their older models having soft and easily dented or chipped steel. I can't speak for other X7 owners, but the edge on mine has proven as durable as my hand forged high carbon steel Swedish hatchets. The steel also takes and holds a hair-shaving edge very good as well.

Size: 14' X7 7850 Hatchet Verified Purchase
I'm not sure I would believe this review if it hadn't happened to me. There are so many positive reviews of the Fiskars X7 hatchet that I can't imagine that the one I received represents the typical quality of the product line. But I'm very frustrated--in fact, angry--with the one I got. Here's why...

Upon receiving the X7 hatchet, I thought it was attractively designed, with a sturdy, functional head cover that fits snugly and protects the entire perimeter of the axe head. As soon as I removed the cover, however, I found the cutting edge to be extremely dull. I don't mean slightly dull. I mean dull enough to safely saw it back and forth across your wrist (NOT recommended! I just want to be clear about how dull.... more like a cast metal edge than sharpened steel.)

That's frustrating, but not a big deal. I'm very experienced at sharpening edged tools and I own a nice set of large diamond stones in a range of grits. After 10 minutes of work on a 600-grit stone, and a final polish on a 1200-grit stone, the hatchet had a nice, shiny, shaving sharp edge. Then I went in the backyard to try chopping some wood. For experiment's sake, I grabbed a few 4" diameter logs of termite-eaten elm and pine from the easement behind our house. Keep in mind, this is dead wood, perforated through the center with termite tunnels, and actually fairly brittle, though the outer perimeter of each log still had a fair bit of density to it. I wasn't expecting it to reveal anything about the hatchet's cutting performance, but just wanted to get a feel for how the hatchet handles.

The first few chops went fine. I liked the length of the handle and the weight of the head, despite the fact that the undersized poll/butt leaves it decidedly edge heavy.

For just over twenty dollars, this is a really good hatchet. I prefer the orange-handled Fiskars to the black-handled Gerber, although they're made by the same company, because the Gerber is made in China and the Fiskars is made in Finland.

The hatchet is 14" long and weighs 1 pound, 14 ounces. The head weighs 1 pound, 4 ounces. The handle is smooth plastic, and has proven to be very sturdy for me. The handle is completely hollow, and shining a light down there, I see that the head is retained internally with some molded plastic "bolts". The butt of the handle is flared enough that the hatchet won't go flying if it's slippery, and a lanyard hole is provided. The plastic handle is cast around the head, and while this is secure, it needs some minor modification. In all three of mine, the plastic edges (at the cutting edge side) are rough, and when chopping, small wooden splinters will wedge themselves between the plastic edges and head, eventually causing failure. To remedy this, smooth the plastic down with sandpaper (but don't thin out the thickness) and then put some epoxy at the joint.

The head isn't stainless, as it is in some of the Gerber hatchets. Instead, it's powder-coated carbon steel. The Rockwell hardness is between 45-50. The edge is 2-3/4" long. Mine came relatively sharp, but a few minutes with a file will give a much better edge. The grind isn't convex, but flat. The cheeks retain their tapering grind all the way to the grind line, kind of like a Scandi grind. This isn't a hatchet to put a razor-sharp edge on. You can, sure, but due to the softness of the steel, it will lose the edge quickly. The head on my hatchets haven't loosened, which was a concern of mine. The butt is also exposed, allowing you to use it as a hammer or tent stake driver.

In all, I'm pleased with this hatchet. Great performance for twenty bucks.
