Comments about Traditional (Multi-purpose) Axe:
I bought this axe because I wanted to clear some land and didn't want to have to ask someone with a chainsaw to help.It is awesome. The blade is fantastic, sharpens easily, holds a nice edge. It's just the right weight and very ergonomic.I am very pleased that I found this axe before spending more money on some of the others on the market.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

This is a great small forest axe.
By Georgia woodworker

About Me Professional
I have owned this axe for over a year now. I take it camping as well as using it at home (I have a lot of trees in my back yard). The axe can be honed razor sharp and holds the edge for a lot of cutting. The ergonomics are really good. For a lighter axe, it cuts deep and clean. At 3 lbs. I have taken it on back packing trips and use the axe to process firewood, make kindling, and even make feather sticks. The longer handle makes this axe safer to use that a hatchet for processing fire wood. Yet it is light enough to choke up on the handle and use it one handed like a hatchet. In the yard the axe does a good job of removing dead limbs from trees and taking down the occasional small tree. This a great all around tool that does everything I need a small axe for. I bought one for my oldest son who has also found it to be a go to tool for himself as well. I have found the quality to be equal to Wetterling and with a litttle honing on par with Gransfor Bruks which I also own.
Awesome, Swedish pride inducing!

Husqvarna Forest Axe
from Mims, Florida
I purchased the Husqvarna Forest axe for it's light weight and the shorter handle, this axe cuts, I have used a large axe purchased from the big box stores and after sharpening, the axe still wouldn't cut due to the stamped out axe head, the steel is not dense enough to transfer the power to cut into the wood, the axe basically bounced off. The Husqvarna forest axe is hand forged, the steel is hammered several times to make it hard.After receiving my axe all that was needed was a few strokes with a file and a little dressing up with a wet stone and this thing cuts and holds an edge.If you want to buy an axe like they used to make, get this one.Ps: I don't recommend this axe for felling large trees, but for trimming and general chopping, I cut down a scrub oak that was 8 inch in diameter in less than a minute, so it cuts very well.

As with the hatchet I purchased at the time Husqvarna was in the middle of model chages for thier axe when I purchased it and my old review is not visable to potential buyers. For thier benefit I am writting it again to let them know that you will not find a better Sweedish hand forged steel axe for the price Husqvarna is asking. My axe has been used extensively and is awesome in the woods.

Great piece of equipment!!!
I just recently received my first Husqvarna Forest Axe and I am quite pleased. Out of the box it looks great. It is well balanced and feels solid. The Forest Axe cuts clean and held it's edge after hours of use. Compared to other hand made axes on the market you get a lot of tool for the money in the Husqvarna line. I highly recommend this product for anyone looking to do a little tree trimming the old fashioned way.
