The Smittybilt Trail Axe is made from 402 stainless and has a unswept heat treated 4 inch x 7.5 inch Axe Blade for improved chopping efficiency. The handle is made from ergonomic nylon reinforced material so you can comfortably use the axe. The axe has a built in survival kit and includes the following: Medical tape, Sewing needle, Fishing line, Match sticks and a compass that is built into the end of the handle.
The axe is a great tool. It hacks through live limbs very easily, about 2 inches in diameter is what I used it on. There are many potential uses for it, and I look forward to keeping it around for a long time. The survival kit in it is a great addition, who knows when I may need it. However the compass was printed or attached incorrectly. It says that true south is north, and true north is south. The label needs to be flipped around on mine, but that is not possible for me. I guess I will just have to keep in mind that it is giving me opposite headings.
Love everything about it except for the compass. It was broke/wrong out of the box
I love all the features this axe comes with, but actual function is not very good. The hex part fits my trail jack nut, but motion is limited. The axe head needs to be wedged, it's not good for splitting. The first time I used it the screw-in compass flew off the handle end and I had to search the trail for my compass-cap and survival kit. The spring inside the handle flew out on my next swing. The knurling on the handle looks great, but is overkill. Wear leather gloves if you don't want to tear up your hands. The flint rod works, but I've seen better. This axe is a great idea, but not very good quality. I would be very interested in buying a revised version.
This thing is awesome. With its multifunctions, it's going to be very useful.
