Camp Axe

This hatchet does what i need it to do. It cuts and chops accordingly to my personal preferences. It is a very beautiful piece of hardware.

Get what you pay for.

Let me start by saying that I am not a blacksmith or have never forged an axe let alone a double bit axe so I can only say that my review is completely based on opinion.
First, the price/value. Even though I chose not to tell my Chief finical advisor (wife), I found that the price fit my budget. It is a handsome piece with a polished head.
The edge was not great at all, in fact I called to vent a little. I have seen better edges on axe heads come out of ACE hardware. The edges showed the rough texture of the file or stone they used at the factory. I elected to sharpen one edge with a deep edge and the other in a more shallow edge as described in George W. Sears book. I have split some seasoned oak with it and has retained its edge very well.
The handle seemed a bit long for my taste but it offer a better swing for added power stroke. I don't care for the reddish brown stain so I will strip it and use a oil for a more natural look. My shipment was delayed due to a defect in the sheath rivets. They were concerned that the rivets might make contact with the edges. I am pleased with the newly designed sheath. the leather is thick, it has a belt loop cut into it and two buttons to close the flap securely.
I know the phrase in the title would suggest that it is not a good product but for the price/value I really do think you are getting a good value axe for what you pay for.
I am sure that George W Sears would agree that this is a common man's tool. Heres to smoothing it.

Spring for the axe sharpening

I have been searching for an affordable, American made, double bit hatchet since the day I discovered the writings of Nessmuk. I'm sure I'm not the only one.

My little Moore Maker arrived in the mail today, and I was tickled to see how truly small it is. the fit and finish of the belt sheath is excellent, and I like the shape and feel of the handle.

I will say. that upon inspection of the blade, I kicked myself for not opting for the SRO axe sharpening. Both edges have a side that are slightly rolled, and both are unevenly ground, however I am confident that a touch up on the grinder, and an hour or two on the whet stone will fix that.

The profile of both edges are stout, and I may attempt to put a thin grind on one end to be faithful to the Nessmuk design.

The hang of the axe itself looks okay. I would have liked to see the steel wedge canted a bit instead of perpendicular to the wood wedge, but that's relatively minor. I'll let it soak in boiled linseed oil for a few days before I use it.

During my inspection, I kept reminding myself that I only spent $50 on this little beauty, and I'm confident that with a little bit of work, it will be a valued piece of kit.

I look forward to getting this little hatchet dirty very soon!

Beautiful hatchet but dull as a butter knife!

The hatchet is absolutely beautiful. It's very well made and the handle is set very nicely with a wooden wedge and a metal wedge. Although I don't really care for the red paint on the handle, I believe I can send that down and oil it. The balance is nice and although I have not used it yet I I'm very experienced with a hatchet and believe this one is going to be a gym with; a lot of work. I chose to purchase this hatchet from self-reliance outfitters because they advertised they were going to have their knife shop sharpen that hatchet. there must have been a mix-up somewhere because mine is dull. It does have a mirror polish on it but it is dull as a butter knife. Well that might be an understatement, my butter knives are sharper than this is! I will contact customer support and see if we can rectify the situation.
