Yay! nice chopper matey,
I just got one too, they are so well made, enjoy it.
Fantastic tool. Mine almost killed me and left for dead in the woods two days after I'd bought it. I have a nice bloodstain on the handle as a memento of our first fight.
I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD,
the Maker of heaven and earth.

LOL my mini bit me as well !
Nice tool shame about the mask that comes with them...........
I keep mine razor sharp and found out what it feels like the hard way - brushed the edge with the back of my hand and cut across two fingers - luckily I carry Steri strips (butterfly stitches).

Yes, nice tool. Learn to use it well. Mors Kochanski's book has some good sections on axe work. Not often we get chance to fell whole trees though.
Did LOTS of limbing with mine in Norway last summer and was very impressed with it.

happy for you,any picture for my own happiness?
Sharps bite - axes bite hard!
Learn how to use it safely before it gets the oportunity to show you its apetite!

Thank you all for your advise regarding axe safety and proper use of the tool. I once hit my shin with a hammer pretending it was an axe (I was 7 or so), since then I am *VERY* careful.
On a different note, I just treated the whole axe (the head, the haft, and the sheath) with Ballistol. So far it looks good. The leather really becomes supple, the grain in the handle comes out, and the axe head looks cleaner and has a sheen now.
Also, my Gransfors Bruks Axe Stone arrived today. YAY
