Very high quality. This axe is made to last and stand the test of time.
This is what I was looking for, a tomahawk that performs as well as a hatchet. It is a little bit heavier than most other hawks I have used, but that is where the magic is. It splits much better than lighter thinner tomahawk due to the weight and profile. It has a handle that is long enough to comfortably use two hands but still small enough to fit in a pack. I have not tried the bow drill divot yet but seems like it should work just fine. Edges both came sharp and the edge grinding is smooth and even. This in my opinion is the best hawk for camping and bushcraft money can buy. I highly recommend it and would buy it again.
