Quality control needed, but still favorite Ax
We purchased 2. They're only being thrown at wood from 20 ft away. 1 works absolutely perfect. As soon as you get it in your hand it just feels so natural to throw. The 2nd one though, as soon as we got it, the sheath was damaged. Not a big deal, but then we took them outside and as soon as I threw this one after throwing the 1st, I felt and saw a difference. It was so much lighter and you could see it was half the size. Didn't think it'd be a problem but the entire handle broke off about 20 throws and less than 48 hours later. I called the warranty dept twice and left messages, I emailed them, and never got a response after 2 weeks. I finally called and just spoke to operator instead of trying to leave another unanswered message. Didn't think I should have to pay to send it back since it came partially damaged and then completely broke due to quality control issue with so little use. I was told that they never send out paid mailers no matter what and that if we want it replaced we have to pay. But as far as the one that we still can use, it's great. Only issue we have is that from the few times we had 2 to throw before mine broke, is that if they hit each other they very easily gouge each other. We've learned you can only throw one at a time while learning. These are so easy to throw, that now I never want to throw anything else. My husband will still throw other things, but the beil ax is our favorite, no question.
