Very good
I love the way this hatchet looks! The blade is very durable and usually keeps its edge. The ferro rod works great too except I have found that a smaller knife works better to strike it.

great purchase
It may not be the toughest, biggest, door smashing tool, but it is indeed a handy, resistant, portable survival tool.

Good one !
I'm pretty happy with this axe. I must say I received just an axe, without its sheath but thanks to Knife Center's customer service, I just received the missing sheath a week or two after even if I live overseas (totally efficient and comprehensive service !). I like the design, I like the use, I also love the included ferrorod. It's perfect for a survival job (chopping wood, splitting logs, carving feather sticks). It also have a hammer side (it looks like a kitchen hammer) which is perfect for pounding (I use it to pitch my TARP with twigs). My only regret is the ferrorod... Actually it's a good quality one but I couldn't find any edge to strike it on the axe (except the cutting edge but I wouldn't use it as a striker). And maybe the weight is too high for a long walk but I didn't tried. All in all a good product and, again, Knife Center is a good website with good care for customers.

Ok except ferro rod
Nice enough camp hatchet for lightweight tasks. My gripe is that the ferro rod lacks any surface for striking so it doesn't replace an existing fire starter in your kit. We tried using hammer side of axe but no luck.

Ok weak steel
Fairly light and portable, sheath is ok i could see it prone to cracking. Handle grip seems to be coming loose also. Blade steel nicks and folds easy under wood splitting... better of getting a carbon steel axe or large knife. All in all pretty average nothing special wouldnt recommend it.
