I'd go for a Small Forest personally. I have a Scandanavian Forest which is around 6" longer, but it can be a little awkward one handed - great for reach when limbing though.
I could blather on about other choices (Roselli and Wetterlings spring to mind), but, first axe, you wont go far wrong with an SFA.
Holowdweller, do you have a link for the Firestone and / or the Ragweed forge please?
Thanks - Red
