What's everyone's favourite chopping axe?

Recommended Posts

Got My x25 yesterday. It's pretty short compared to the x27, and I think it would be uncomfortable to use for lots of chopping as I'm 6'1", but for splitting down smaller logs and little bits and pieces it'll be fine.

Fiskars X27 for me, rule of thumb is if that Wranglestar guy doesn't like them you know they must be good.

I too use the fiskars x27, fantastic bit of kit compared to the mauls, to heavy for a lot of chopping. The x27 is light with super sharp edge, I touch the edge up when finished ready for next time using a sharpening puck. If you guys haven't seen the YouTube video of splitting logs with a tyre, have a look. Great idea and saves walking around picking up the logs or falling over them. I made my own fastened to a stump, so much better 👍
