  1. Husqvarna Universal Axe A2400 I think its important to explain that i actually preferred wooden axes, hand made, theres something about a quality wooden axe that can’t be described. Unfortunately, wooden axes don’t lend themselves too well to arborist treatment, they’re not designed for hitting wedges, not just hitting wedges but really smacking them in hard, They're not normally designed for splitting knotty arb waste, the strength in the wooden handles varies, some wooden handles have lasted me a year or more, others a week. So i decided to get one of these husqvarna axes, specifically, the A2400 with its composite, fiber re-inforced, 70cm shaft (Plastic to me!) Soft grip areas and heavy head (2400 = 2.4kg) with a non stick coating its proved to be extremely durable with the abuse I've given it - hitting in felling wedges, splitting gnarly wood, in fact, id go as far to say as its the best splitting axe I’ve used! They come with a really good plastic cover for the axe head, should you need it - quite important as its sharp when new, and really holds the edge well. It feels like theres less vibrations passed to your hands when abusing it, although this view isn’t backed up with any facts, but important to consider. Cost wise this series of axe starts at £35rrp for the hatchet up to £65,50rrp for this or the S2800 splitting axe. This is similar pricing to your average wooden handle axe, but long term far cheaper. Pricing is also significantly cheaper than Husqvarnas wooden handled axes. This also makes this professional grade product affordable to the home owner in my opinion. Axes in this Husqvarna Axe series: Universal Hatchet 900B Universal axe A1400 Universal axe A2400 Splitting axe S1600 Splitting axe S2800 I'll be rating this axe at 4/5, Its biggest asset - the plastic shaft, is also loosing it a point, in an age where plastic is starting to become demonised, its important in my opinion that Husqvarna look for a "greener" plastic.

    Axe Throwing

    I am looking for someone to run an axe throwing event for a Scottish Arb Day which is planned for 27th August 2016. We will have a climbing demo and hopefully a fun climbing competition. More on this later. The location will most likely be between Abington (on the M74) and Lanark. We are trying to make it a free event but have some funds to pay if necessary. We will hopefully be having a social event after involving the usual fire, food and drinking, with people camping on site. I know there was a group in Dumfries who did this, but I cannot find any sign of them on the web. I'd be open to alternative suggestions for something similar. Any help much appreciated!
