The best axe I've ever owned, fit & finish excellent, balanced head with 2 barrel safety wedges... The best & modern as well...no gaps in head is the result... perfect size handle & ratio weight to head... I cannot use those large gorilla sized axes because of my size & for back pack canoeing so this is IMHO PERFECT!!!! Disregard any junk reviews on the net... THIS IS A REAL AMERICAN MADE AXE WITH A STAMPED HEAD... IT SPEAKS OF QUALITY & TRADITION... Everyone loves a Hudson Bay axe because of its size and ability... If you're looking to buy an axe... here you ARE!!!


This axe lasted my 13-year-old son less than an hour of clearing brush before the axe head bent. I returned it and went with another brand. I would not recommend this axe, and I am glad it didn’t glance off the surface of a log/branch and hurt him. I have pictures of the bend and it’s from the heat treat process not the user.


The current run of Snow & Nealley axes are an amazing value. If you are looking for a working tool and not expecting Swedish perfection, you will be pleased. You are getting reasonably close to Swedish quality for much less cost. I bought two of these as well as the larger Single Bit axe. All three are great axes. They all have very slim, comfortable handles and are well built. As long as you don't expect absolute perfection in handle straightness, grain alignment or head alignment with the handle, you will have a tool that will serve you well.
