Fiskars Axe

The Fiskars axe is a great cutting tool for camping and overnight outings. 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.

Trail Purpose

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. 

This axe is great for situations where you are camping with a vehicle. We recommend adding this tool to your gear when you go car camping or camp overnight in a camper. At a campsite 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 common chopping activities. 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.

What's Included

  1. Light weight axe
  2. Plastic axe head cover

What We Like

  • Weight - The axe weighs under 6 pounds, which is a small tradeoff for the utility.
  • Blade - We found the blade shape to be very efficient - each swing can be carefully placed and split wood.
  • Balance - Since the handle is very light, all of the weight is lifted high above the head and when swung, the leverage is very advantageous.

Tips and Recommendations

  • Use as intended - while the multi-tool is sturdy, use it wisely. The blade works great as a hatchet but not so well as a lever.
  • Bad swings - be careful to not strike the ground or other unintended objects.
  • Dry wood - focus your efforts on dry wood whenever possible.
