Rated 4 out of 5 by johnbmarek If Weight Is A Factor, This Axe Fits The Bill
I bought the U.S.T SaberCut Camp Axe as a replacement for a generic wood-handled hatchet I'd been carrying around in my backpack for several years. I compared the SaberCut to a couple of other similarly-priced camp axes and chose it because it was a bit lighter, a bit less expensive and came with a full sheath, as opposed to just a blade cover..
In the two months I have owned it, I have taken it on two extended overnight backpacking trips and have also used it some around the homestead. My general perception is that is is an extremely well-made tool that performs reasonably well once you develop an understanding of its uses and limitations.
As it was my first lightweight axe, I was not initially prepared for it to be so... well... light. On my first overnight, I attempted to use it like I had the much heavier hatchet it replaced. Basically, it just bounced off the wood. I eventually came to the understanding that I needed to treat it more like a sharp knife positioned 90 degrees at the end of a long handle. Once I had that picture in my mind, I was able to complete all of the essential camp chores; chopping kindling, cutting branches, clearing brush. I just had to understand that the difference in weight required different leverage.
I am going to give this axe four out of five stars. Personally, I would probably be willing to sacrifice a few ounces in weight to get a little more effectiveness in chopping, but if weight is a factor, this axe fits the bill.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Badgerx88 Great small axe
I knew I wanted a smaller axe and ordered this after comparing a few. I can always get a ruler, so size is on me. It's SOLID, rugged and the handle is well made and easily gripped. I didn't realize it had a sharpened wedge on the very top til I got it. Added bonus. the sheathe is actually why I bought it. I wanted to be able to clip it to my rucksack so I can access it and not have to pack it. Turned out to be great all around!

This is a great little axe.....Very sturdy frame and the blade comes quite sharp out of the box....Perfect for small axe applications and the sheath is well made......
