nothing bad to say about the fiskars x7 hatchet. its a quality item and the price is a steal. only flaw is in the fibercomp handle, where i guess the term would be the upper-belly (striking side of the handle, upper portion just under the head) .. somtimes there is a flaw where a hole is formed, when the mold is not broken cleanly from the excess material when the raw handle is coming out of the factory mold. and this is a key part of the handle, its the part that hits if you ever miss and make an "over strike". a hole or crack in that area, being pounded on over time could lead to failier i would guess. and thats what i got when i bought online, i saw that hole and took it right back for a refund. ordered another one, and it was fine. the one i returned on top of that looked like it had been sitting in a corner of the walmart warehouse collecting dust and it was scratched up and blemished aswell. rare mishap im sure. overall i am happy with the new hatchet, looks "fresh". did some yard work today and very pleased with preformance, got a small bend on the top of the blade, i must of hit a knot. but the blade material is great, it bends instead of chips, which is easier to resharpen. having a steal that is slightly soft is desired.
