While i have a large axe and wedge i needed this for a planking a technique i'm trying to learn (to make rough planks from logs) (and for smaller brush/trees de-barking, its far easier than a large axe). Perfect for $ minded garage where not every tool needs to be snap-on tools quality.

> Worse yet, today I was cutting a yucca stump (not a very hard wood) and the handle broke off at the base of the head (and had to sharpen many times
I beleive those lower star comments are all fake, posted by a competitor. for instance: breaking a handle on a large axe (by improper use) is not a-typical, by hitting the handle against the log by mistake. But there is practically NO WAY your going to break a handle on a small axe!! It's not heavy enough to product that kind of shock even if you hit the handle (not blade) against wood. see below. The attatchment is same as any "good" axe. The handle is light but sturdy wood (good) and easily replaced if ever there is a need (unlike fiberglass models). It has two axe handle wedges properly placed, not one, it's all shellaced in, not junk, no way it's coming out unless it's used badly/improperly and you'd have to throw any other axe away. their stories dont match up to even the right kind of axe!
I tested this item on a one foot in diameter log. i hammered it in with a 10 lb. heave one-hand sledge hammer (part of a wood splitting / planking technique) to test it's steel.Read more ›
I had to spend sometime with a file and stone sharpening the edge so the tool is now shaving sharp.
But otherwise satisfied.
Don't expect to chop down a tree with it as it's a compact Axe.
First of all, the blade didn't seem to keep a good cutting edge for very long. I've sharpened it too many times for the limited use it has received. Worse, the handle was not firmly fixed to the hatchet head and tended to slip off during use. In active use, it had to be tapped back on every few minutes. Annoying and potentially dangerous. Worse yet, today I was cutting a yucca stump (not a very hard wood) and the handle broke off at the base of the head. Supposedly it had a "flame treated hickory handle," whatever that might mean, but surely a hatchet handle might be expected to last longer than this. Maybe I just got a defective handle, but what do I do now with a broken fifteen-month-old tool? Take it back? Well, my solution is to not buy Vaughn products again and to warn others. Otherwise, it's a nicely designed tool. Given a decent handle, I'd expect to have it around and use it for many years.
When I got home, I immediately headed to Lowes, and Home depot to buy one of these. Of course, neither store carried these axes, even though they seem to carry everything else made by Fiskars. So I ordered on from Amazon.
By the time I received my X27 (less than a week) I had some Black walnut ready and waiting to be split. I split an entire cord with the X27 in a couple of hours. I know black walnut is fairly easy to split anyway, but it's all I had at the time to test it out. I was still less worn out swinging this thing than the maul.

I received this hatchet thinking it would be great because well "made in USA" yet the hatchet I received had an edge so dull I basically just spent $20 for a hammer. Read morePublished 3 months ago by A7
