I wanted to buy a small axe, mainly for preparing fire wood for a log burner but also for a few general tasks. I considered various GB axes but after discussing my requirements with Woodlore decided on the Splitting Hatchet. I am not one for writing reviews, but feel compelled to let others know what a fantastic tool this is. It has performed flawlessly, splitting logs with ease - some much bigger than I expected it to tackle. Some large knots require a little more effort but this axe is an absolute pleasure to use for the intended purpose. The head is a good weight and the slight scoring on the bottom of the handle, which I was initially sceptical about, does provide some extra grip as intended. The handle, which seems rather dry when new, has now had several coats of boiled linseed oil, that I carefully applied with 0000 wire wool, and is now looking and feeling much better for it. The hatchet has quickly become one of my favourite possessions and I look forward to using it for many years to come. Thank you Woodlore for an impeccable service, as always.
