Built for tough use, the Black Legion Camping Hatchet has a 4" extra-thick axe blade with a blunt hammer side. Whether you are splitting wood or drywall, it will get the job done in record time. The handle is made of sturdy fiberglass with a rubberized slip-free grip. Do not go camping without this tool as part of your gear.
I'm giving it a five good chopper, shud u find yourself surrounded by zombies or mere brush, this will do the trick the axe head and handle top notch
ive had this for over 4 years and i love it, it works as good as new and holds a great edge and is easy to sharpen, would buy again.
I got this axe for myself and for Christmas gifts. It's well balanced and sharp. Good quality and a great value.
I got this on sale for 10.00 and free shipping, as a result my expectation weren't that high, When it got here i was blown away at the quality of this Hatchet. It takes a mean one on all others i have great product. I would recommend it to any one looking for a great hatchet that wont break! And wont break the bank.
I tried this axe out last month chopping fire wood on a mountain back packing trip. It chops better then my other survival axes and it sharpens back up in 2 minutes with a file. 13 dollars compare to 60 dollars for other survival axes and this one is way better. This is a great buy, get it while you can.
This is a excellent piece. I got this for my dad for Christmas and he loves it. He uses it all the time and I would use this in a fight to death against an army of zombies so I fully recommend this for survivalist.
Got this and used it chopping some wood outback. Very nice, not super sharp but sharpening it up made it a great all around hatchet. I love this axe for camping and outdoor work. It came with a cover for the blade which is good enough, considering the price which is a bargain.
I like to go camping and "survive" off the land. I brought this ax along with me and used only this to split enough firewood for a fire to burn 24/7 for a week. As I said in the header,I must have split a whole tree with this ax and it held up great and is ready for next year's trip. I had my doubts when I saw the ax but it blew my expectations out of the water, for the price especially. I could not ask for a better tool, thanks budk.
Look no further, this is a outstanding hatchet!...best bang for your money. Buy one for all your friends and family!
I received this as a Christmas gift from my sweetheart, since he sees me periodically take my old broken hatchet to wood when I'm stressed or angry. It's practical and a good weight since I'm not very strong and I'm a very small woman in stature alone. It's exactly what I expected and a little more since I didn't think this blade as is would cut anything, but one swing unsharpened and I split a good sized log and shot splinters across the room. As for the 'glue' It's not actually a practical piece and can be removed if the user desires. Simply the little decorative band around the bottom and has nothing to do with the structural integrity of this item. Over all, it's comfortable, well shaped, a good weight, and I expect to use it on a daily basis to split wood this winter. For all of those people out there who are upset about it being dull bear in mind that I am a clumsy fool and would most likely chop off my own toes if it came fully sharpened so if you're gifting it to another fool it's perfect.
This is one nice hatchet. Very tough, all you need to do is put a nice edge on it and it will cut away. A must for your survival gear. I have used it and find it does a great job around the camp.
BudK sent this complimentary hand ax. As an avid kayaker...this is a sturdy practical piece. A good all round cutting tool. I don't work for "THEM" either, but I would like to know what others received to complain about....it's just a good ax. It doesn't sharpen itself, go on a diet to loose weight,or clear a campsite by itself (no "AUTO" switch). Again...it's just a good ax.
Bought this hatchet for use while hunting/camping. Little did I know this was a little powerhouse hatchet! It wasn't as sharp as I wanted when it arrived but after only a few minutes on the sharpening wheel it took a real nice edge that stayed very sharp. I really like the balance and size of the axe. It fits in a pack or on a belt clip yet its heavy enough to really hack some good size limbs and firewood. I would recommend this for a friend, hunting buddy or camper on my holiday list.
Yes, you will have to sharpen the blade. No big deal. It is heavier then I was expecting. Think it will be ok for spliting wood.
i purchased 2 of these hatchets and , what a great buy . good medium weight steel head , takes and holds an edge . fiberglass handle is strong and light . i drilled a hole in each for a lanyard i made from some camo 550 . i took both out back and laid into some soft maple fire wood (you do not want to be on the business end of these sharp S.O.B's) they hacked through it like paper machet . yet another great deal from budk . if and when the zombies come ,the safest place is behind me , cause i'm going to be a frigin quisnart ....
Used it on my last 2 night camping trip. Does everything you want it to. You will want some sort of sheath or at least a cardboard cover, it is sharp, and takes and holds an edge real well. Really solid item.
We are very happy with our hatchet. Since we are getting older and don't have the strength we used to have we needed something a little lighter. This tool works perfect for the jobs we needed it to do. I'd recommend it to anyone for the lighter jobs in the country.
have not had a chance to use the hatchets i bought. i sharpened them as they needed it, and they seem to be made well. if they stand up to heavy use they are a tremendous deal. i put one in each car and saved one for use around the house and shop. if the heads do not come loose and the handles hole up they are well worth the cost. big enough for chopping and the other side is wide enough for hammering stakes or what ever. recommended buy, but realize i have not used them yet. if the handle holds up and the steel is not so brittle it cracks or chips you will get your monies worth.
I just received these today and I was very surprised at how sturdy they are and being as I bought them in a 2 for 1 deal made them even better . The ONLY drawback is they arrive without a sharp edge but that is easily solved .
This in my mind is an outstanding hatchet . Overall. However, its true the blade is dull and does come sheath less. But for only 14 bucks who could complain and the hatchet could always be sharpen I mean u have to do it sometime right. So this was so worth the buy, I personally bought two .. I recommend yes if your wondering on purchasing this hatchet take my word for it.
Great axe at a great price. Just the thing for when I go camping to split up firewood. Its also practically indestructible. Very happy with my purchase.
This is a superb axe. It is weighted just right for me. It's good for chopping and swinging! It does come with a rubber blade cover, though not a sheath. You will be pleased if you buy one. I bought two!
Purchased this on a two for one deal and free shipping and received my order quickly. My uses of these axes one will be in my one day/36 hour field pack and one for my seven day to go bag. The weight, balance and feel are excellent and these replaces an old beat up wooden axe that deserves to be retired. Both units needed to be sharpened and design a quick carry slip-zip cord carry-all with pressure quick release. I have use one of these now on two back-to-back camping trips and this axe came in handy both times. Two for one makes the purchase price each less than $7.00 - can't beat a deal like that. Excellent product, well made and once sharpened stays sharp - a knife edge on my axes. As to recommending this products - already have...
Just the right size, good balance. Little heavier than I imagined, but that is good also - for it bites hard, especially after using a little diesel or gas on a Lansky THE PUCK Dual Grit Tool Blade Knife Axe Ax Machete Sharpener. Will buy again later.
Im giving this a 4 star because it doesn't come with a sheath. Otherwise it holds up better than my expectations were originally! ????????
Made out of a decent piece of steel and designed correctly, but sharpened very badly. The cutting edge came actually slightly blunt, and rounds back into the body of the ax head instead of flat or concave. It's sort of like trying to cut wood by beating on it with a piece of pipe, although it will split with the grain okay. I'll have to do some work on it with the grinder. Maybe it was meant to be like that, but by the time I get it the way I want it, I'm not sure it will be all that much of a bargain over a comparable hardware store hand ax.
This is a very well made camp axe, it has the weight to really take a bite of wood , or what ever you needs are, good vaule for the buck also wish it had a shealt which is its only draw back
I like the feel on this ax the only down side it does not come sharp or with a belt looped case but I do like to use it when I am camping thank you BUDK.
this is good axe i took it out for camping and used it to chop of logs not as big (in diameter) as the picture shows but it is very durable and strong on impact, will recommend to anyone. the only bad thing is don't expect to be very sharp needs to be sharpened.
I really like the weight to this hatchet. It has a heavy head and durable handle. The blade is not sharp sharp at all though and it did not come with a case (I ended up making one with cardboard and duct tape). It is still pretty well constructed for 16 dollars...it just need some sharpening.
Got two of these on a BoGo sale. They look good, but the handle is attached to the blade with what seems to be hot glue, and the metal head separates from the handle after a short amount of use. NOT a tool you want in a bug-out bag or any situation where a modicum of reliability is an issue. That said, you get what you pay for, and if you're expecting a quality item marketed as a "zombie apocalypse" tool - well ... there ya go.
