    Personally, i would buy it new. Would not want to spend that kind of money and have to grind on it first thing. Its not exactly a lowes tool! When you spend the money on a quality axe you should get a first rate axe. I know i love my HB and was worth every penny i paid.

    That is my gut feeling also. Was browsing through my options and found that. What's $30 on something that will last basically forever I guess

    Might be able to find a good used head and rehandle it also. Those old heads are really good iron!

    I thought about it, but have no idea how to do that. Probably could learn though

    Go watch a few Buckin Billy Ray videos on YouTube. You'll have a nice tight handle on there in no time!

    Any idea if the "premium axes" are worth the extra coin over the "standard axes". It's not a huge difference in so I just wonder what the real differences are? Better steel and wood?

    The premium axes are like the one i have shown. They have the raw forgeing look. The standard ones have a peened finish to hide any forgeing defects.

    Also the standard axes are smaller in head weight usually top out at 2.5-2.75 lbs. The permium axes top out at 3.5 lbs. This does not include the splitting axes.

    I'm trying to choose between the Bjork(standard with curved handle) or the Sarek(premium with straight handle). I really like the straight on my fiskars so I'm leaning toward the Sarek. But kinda want to try something different? Too bad I don't want to spend on both!

    I like the strait handle for banging wedges and splitting. Curved for chopping/felling. But its just personal preference.

    Just placed my order for the Sarek. Delivery by the 20th. I'm excited, have about 1/2 cord ash and a little less red oak to knock down

    How do you keep yours sharp? I just hit the fiskars with a file, I'm sure there are better ways.

    Seriously though, i dont use it for chopping as much as i do for banging wedges. But i use one of those dual grit puck looking round stones.
