Estwing E14A Sportsman's Axe Leather Grip - 2.3/4in Edge (1.1/4 lb), Steel
About this deal
The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest offers outstanding balance and is our favorite option for precise tasks like limbing logs or cutting down saplings (of invasive species only, don't worry). The Fiskars X11 is a close second. It's a little less light and lively and more ruthlessly efficient, which we appreciate. The hollow orange handle also helps absorb vibrations, saving your forearms. This is a great little axe for one-handed tasks, from kindling to limbing to splitting a bit of firewood

The Fiskars Norden N12 is more top-heavy than other top options, making it harder to swing with one hand. It's not terrible, and we don't have trouble with accuracy when splitting wood or choking up on the handle to hold it near the axe head. Still, for precision tasks, we'd choose a different axe.

The Estwing Sportsman's Axe is nearly as sharp as the category leaders, with the MTech following closely behind. All of these axes performed to our expectations. The performance of the remaining axes tended to suffer due to blunter blades. The Estwing and Kershaw options are also well-balanced axes, though they have very different designs. The Kershaw is incredibly light and straight. The Estwing balances its hefty weight with a power-transfer curve.
