100% agree. Please see below. I love this thing. It came pretty sharp. I couple passes on the Sharpmaker and it was hair popping sharp. The quality is great. This is the SAW13 Wildlife Axe. I want to add the SAW10 in the future. Hand forged adds a lot of character. It was more than I wanted to spend, but when compared to a "plastic" fiskar or drop forged Home Depot model, I had no choice. It set me back $65 shipped.
