fred gordon said:Many thanks Red and as Blue Boy says very timely. I am hinting at a small forest axe for Christmas. One thing though when I looked the first pic for the first time I thought it was a hairy chest!!

British Red said:OMN,
The Scandinavian is a limbing axe rather than a felling axe so hence, if you were expecting a felling axe, my apologies. I do find a full 30" plus 3lb felling axe too heavy to carry around as a rule for general Bushcraft purposes hence my love for my scandinavian. Even out of the box it does require some bevel polishing etc. mind you!
The puppy meister (Andrew at Outdoorcode) will sort you out a hell of a price on an American if thats your preferred choice - I would suggest you consider the "working axe" option though - a truly beautiful axe
