The Fiskars axe is a great cutting tool for emergency situations. Its polymer handle is light making the chopping swing very efficient.
The axe head shape directs considerable splitting force to the target. It holds an edge well and can be reshaped if the ground or a rock is struck accidentally.
The light weight means it can be carried in a bug-out situation.
We've split many cords of firewood and even chopped down a number of trees with our Fiskars axe. It's a pretty efficient tool. Swinging it is easy. The light handle means most of the weight is at the top of the swing so the force is considerable. The Fiskars axe is the perfect combo of weight, balance, and efficiency. We're not sure what the metal is but it holds an edge and is easily sharpened and reshaped if needed.
We recommend adding this tool to a Stage 4 survival support tools for situations where you are relocating with a vehicle. In an emergency it would help with fire duties, shelter making, close up defense, and more. For the price, the value is fantastic!
This tool can tackle many of the survival priorities. It can help you build shelter, prepare food, administer first aid, prepare fuel for burning, cut cordage, and so much more. It's just the right size to keep its weight minimized while providing the best function.
