And then.... I was working on a couple trees for the good part of a day and right before I stopped for the evening my axe broke in half! There must have been a flaw in the forging that finally gave loose. I was devastated! I want to believe that mine was a random fluke because this axe is so good. I have contacted Husqvarana and am awaiting a response for a replacement. Hoping they make it right and send me a new one. Will update when I hear something back and change my rating accordingly.
Again, I would buy this axe again. That's how much I have loved using it. But beware that if this happened to me it could happen again
UPDATE: I spoke with Husqvarna U.S customer service and explained the situation. I even offered to send them a picture of the axe to show what had happened. After being put on hold for about 15 minutes I was told upper management stated that because I had purchased the axe over 90 days ago there was nothing they could do about it. It was now outside of the manufacturers warranty.
VERY DISAPPOINTED. I guess $80.00 isn't worth a satisfied customer. What a shame.
The handle is hickory; all nicely aligned and grain direction on my axe was indeed perfect. Tightness of the grain was above average. However the linseed oil finish needs sanding down. A little scraping with a chisle near the axe head also helps. Finish up with a coat of bees wax/orange oil and you are left with a beautiful handle.
The axe head is hand forged with the Husqvarna symbol deeply embossed. It shows traces of grinding marks and the edge is no where near the hair cutting sharpness of a Gransfors Bruks. However the Swedish steel is there and the profile is correct. You just need to be willing to devote about 2 hours on a Japanese waterstone to get it razor sharp. The profile of the axe blade is thin, making it good for limbing, felling small trees and making kindling. However its lack of wedge shape makes splitting of larger logs challenging, as the blade tends to stick into the wood. (ie, more of a slicer than a splitter)
This is the perfect camp axe at a bargain price. Get them while you can!
This is a very fine tool for the money. For me, bringing the edge up myself is part of the joy of owning it. This ax is indeed a joy to own and use.
One of the reviewers has mentioned the condition that he got his in--mine appears better--a lot better. The finish is comparable to the Gransfors and a lot cheaper--like half the price.
If anyone is looking for a high class axe at a decent price for bushcrafting, this is it. The head is light but with the added length, you'll get a good bite on your wood. I just can't believe the quality of this axe for the price. Mine came with a much better sheath than my Wetterlings, and from what I remember this sheath appears better than the Gransfors. An unbelievable value. Get them while you can. The only negative to the axe is that it is not sharpened as fine as the Weterrlings or the Gransfors, but the truth is that if you haven't learned how to put a keen edge on an axe yet, this axe is not for you. Purchase a couple of cheap chinese versions and learn how to properly sharpen an axe, and you'll be glad you did. This is too nice an axe for a greenhorn. Oh, one more thing. It is now very cold where I live--in the teens. You have to be careful with these swedish axes because the steel is harder than your average axe. This can be a good thing, but it can also be a bad thing in the wintertime. You don't want to start chopping on a tree with a frozen axe. The high rockwell hardness can cause the blade to chip or crack. Warm these axe heads up inside a house and do not leave them outside overnight and then start cutting right away. You could easily break a chunk off the axe--it has happened a number of times with the Gransfors so I am just giving you a heads up.
