Lemme axe you this...
Wood handle is dandy - hickory/straight grain. Headfit on the handle - ok, a little rough but will give it time to 'wear in' after a bit of use.Blade comes pretty sharp - be prepared to use a stone to 'de-bur' but otherwise, no complaints.Ergonomics are nice. I'm fairly stout and can handle it one handled pretty easily, but if you need to 'choke up' on the handle, do so (and re-start your weight lifting program. You know who you are) If a 30" handle is too long , one can always saw off 3 or 4" and improve the weight ratio - but try good old weight lifting first. Looks awesome, handles well. I'm prepared to repel boarders.

Pros: Handle Material, Balance, Weight, Head Material
Cons: None
Out of the box very dull, but lets be honest I'm going to sharpen it my self. I know that 1055 steel is some of the toughest steels you can use for a knife, still I was not prepared for how tough it was to sharpen. I used an angle grinder with a 40 grit flap wheel and it took some time to get the profile I wanted. Very wear resistant, once you get an edge on this thing it will probably hold it for quite some time. From the picture the handle looks round it is actually an oval shape it has a light coating of some sort and is not sanded 100% smooth, kinda looks scraped. I found this to very nice in the hand. Also very light weight, I see no problem with using it as a camping/hiking ax.

liking it
Great axe. The head was very poorly fit as per usual with the cold steel line but that's nothing some sandpaper can't fix. It came sharp out of the box and feels great in the hand.
