    Incredible and solidly build axe! Definitely heavy duty. Just as great for chopping wood as for chopping doors!

  2. John Angelbeck

    I wanted a heavy duty axe for breaking large stumps and some of the harder wood we have here in Missouri. The FE6 has exceeded my expectations and handles everything I throw at it!

    Well balanced, feels great in the hands and easy to swing. Can’t recommend this axe enough!
