    The one axe/tool I can not seem to find one I really like. What is yours and why.
    I have been thinking real hard on trying one of these 2 but not a lot of feed back on them. I really like the big flat pole on the larger one. 20170908_185641.jpg

    2400 gram ~ 90$
    1400 gram ~80$

    One can only hope they are good at those prices.

    I can't help regarding feedback, never even seen one of those, lest used one.

    Those appear to be sexy versions of Fiskars. I have a Fiskars axe and splitting maul that are very nice and work well. Don't use them a whole bunch so I can't say how durable they really are but they seem to hold up well. If these are, in fact, made by Fiskars I'd say they should be similar.

    Those look like splitting axes not feeling by the wedge head.

    I have the 2400. It does the job, but like Brian mentioned the wedge head could be a bit bigger. 1/4" more would make a huge difference

    I have used the Fiskars axe and I have two Stihl axes. Both were ordered under the same part number but are two different axes. The Stihls are made by Oxhead. I like a wood handled axefor pounding felling wedges.

    Ya I am just meaning an axe to carry while I fell trees with the chainsaw.
    I can not seem to find the right fit. I do have the small husqvarna 26" axe. As its length and east to carry are great it just needs a bit more lead in the him.
    I also have a fiskars x25 which is weighted good but the pole is small and feels off to swing backwards. I think I may try my husqvarna lrges splitting axe. The pole is of fair size (not as big as the a2400) but straight handle and fair weight. But I keep hearing that 2400 call my name.

    Where can I find an Arveka 4.5lb felling axe like Buckin' mentions in the video?



    I've had no luck this far.

    I like my Council Jersey, but I wish it was 1 lb. heavier.

    I found a place in Canada a year ago. They wanted around $100 plus shipping. I really like the looks of those and Billy sure can get the most out of them.
