Recent Axe/Hatchet Reviews

Klecker Knives Ti-KLAX

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an amazing, lightweight, multi tool ax perfect for hiking and backpacking. We took this multi tool titanium ax on our trek of the Pacific Crest Trail. We wanted something that was lightweight because backpack weight on the trail is crucial.   It comes with an optional handle, but we chose to use the KLAX head alone in the field to make its own handle for better weight management. It was fairly easy and quite fun to craft a branch into a handle with the KLAX head and patent pending clamping… Full review

Council Tool Forest Service Axe

rated 4 of 5 stars USA made lightweight axe, also called a "boy's axe." Great for when you are on an extended camping trip and more than a hatchet is required for wood procurement. I'd recommend this axe for those who are less concerned with weight but don't want to carry or don't need a full sized axe. I ordered the axe from Omaha Knife with a couple of options. First, hand picked for appearance and grain alignment. Second, sharpened beyond the factory edge. Through doing these things, I saved myself some time on… Full review

Gerber Bear Grylls Survival Hatchet

rated 3 of 5 stars Good survival hatchet. This is a great tool to have in primitive situations. Hatchet over saw any day. Won't bind like a saw. Me and buddies have felled trees up to 8" diameter. Even though the rubberized handle seems like a good idea I've had friends head home early partly because of blood blisters brought on by the grip. For some reason there's a hole for a lanyard at the end but no lanyard included, fine for do it yourselfers like myself, but had to scratch my head at this. Will be making a… Full review

Estwing Leather Sportsman's Axe

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great tool for processing logs at camp. Sharp, well made in the USA, takes a licking and keeps on ticking. Can tackle much larger jobs that other small backpacking hatchets would not be able to. This is a very solid hatchet for splitting wood at camp. I've used this hatchet on over 20 nights of backpacking or canoeing. The hatchet has mainly been used to quarter/half logs that are 4-12 inches in diameter and 1-2 feet in length.  The weight/design of the hatchet allows you to easily split 4 inch… Full review
