Remind me of the fiskers. How they compare?  Been thinking about the longer handle fiskers myself.

Remind me of the fiskers. How they compare?  Been thinking about the longer handle fiskers myself.

There are small differences when compared to Fiskars ( 23,5 inch) . I did about 4 cubic meters of firewood (very small to medium sized birch,mountain ash, alder,poplar) logs so it works but i can not say yet which one is better.This size is handy for versatile use and it is more effective when the wood is smaller compared to fiskars ( x25/x27) so  it would be good to buy a couple of different sizes.

 You can't go wrong with Fiskars , they have sold XX million  :)

" In Finland, an example of a truly innovative product is
the axe. The most ancient of tools, with origins dating
back 50,000 years, was “ reinvented” . The Fiberglass reinforced plastic
handle of the new Handy axe envelopes
the carbon steel head in a Stone Age fashion.
The line includes five axes of different sizes for different
uses. Handy has already won many international awards
for ergonomy and design, although It has
been available mainly In Finland only in its first
year of marketing.  " 

Old Fiskars after xxx cubic meters of firewood,works like new.
