Jesse was awesome to work with and one of the many reasons I love supporting small businesses. Given the timeline, for my travel itinerary, Jesse went above and beyond to make sure I was able to receive my axe before heading off into the woods. I have no doubt large corporate America wouldn't devote the time, energy (not to mention) text me directly from his personal number to coordinate delivery. Can't say enough for their customer service.
As far as the axe goes, its the perfect length and weight for a backpacking trip. This axe has enough weight and length to get enough torque/momentum into each swing that felling any tree is accomplished with great efficiency. It feels nice in the hand and doesn't burden the overall weight of your pack. Highly recommend it for backing and camping adventures.
