Customer ReviewsWrite a review
Was a little doubtfull at first. But once I got it in hand and started using it it blew my mind. Great little axe for the back pack around the camp and doing projects wow on the money. Now have to get another one the 11 year old boy just about as taking it over. He said it fits his hand and his back pack just fine. The edge stays sharp for good long time.
PFT Belt Axe
Came sharp out of the box, handle fit perfectly on the axe. Heavier than I expected, but I am happy with that. Cuts well, and easy to control. Very happy with it.
I tested this axe against some pine branches I bucked. Here is what I found.
The neck gets larger as it approaches the head making it head heavy despite not having a hammer pole. This will take some getting used to compared to an Estwing 14 inch hatchet which is more center balanced. The handle itself has a sufficient swell in the back to keep it from flying out of your hands but I wrapped it with tape for better grip (large hands). The neck and the head all have rough squared angles so with a little work with a Bastard File I can throw sparks. I found the neck closest to the head to be easiest for this with placing the head flat on a piece of wood. The angle of the bevel is broad, favoring splitting more than fine cuts like when trying to make a stake. This axe also batons very well baring in mind I avoided going through knots. Because of the balance and the metal type I DO NOT recommend this axe for throwing.
This is just my opinion, but this axe seems as close to the Pathfinder Survival Knife guidlines as you can reasonably expect. If you live somewhere that only small Mora sized knives are allowed to carry this would be a good primary to compliment your system.
A cheap option for a mask would be the nylon sheath for the Estwing E24A. Snug fit with a little extra space in the back to stick a small sharpening stone.
The Belt Axe is great. I was just expecting a sheath to come with it so I can wear it on my belt. I called the store and was told sheaths are to be offered for sale anytime now.
