I'm a mountain Backpacker, and when i go hiking i stay out for 5-7 days, so the lightest yet strongest of gear is what i can afford to bring. When i received this hand axe, first thing i noticed was its full tang through the handle, there is no way your going to break this thing, only dull it, second thing i noticed is the sheath and axe together is extremely light. the edge holds very sharp and hacks through ponderosa pines like a normal hatchet despite being 3x less the weight. I would reccomend this to through hikers and hunters all over who need a good stout axe to cut firewood to bone
