Pro Universal Forestry Axe is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great axe but needs some TLC. This axe is a diamond in the rough. It is very well made. I don't think the head will ever come off thanks to Stihls 5 point attachment design. The hickory handle is very sturdy and very well protected from over strike with the metal collar covering the exposed shoulder. The steel "C60" seems very hard so it should hold an edge....once you put one on it. My axe was very dull, dare I say rounded. It's heavy enough that I probably could have chopped with it with out sharpening the edge, but I had to take a file to it just to shape the edge. The factory "edge" if you could call it that did not extend to either blade edge. I didn't like the lacquer and paint on the handle, so I removed it and finished it with several applications of boiled linseed oil for a much nicer looking and more importantly comfortable handle. The sheath is not very good. The Stihl dealer I bought mine from let me pick the best sheath from the other aces he had in stock and it still fell apart in less than a week, from the wear and tear it received while I was working to get the axe ready for use. You can imagine how it would work outside my home. All in all though the axe is very nice and will serve you well, once you give it a lot of love. For another $30 I bought an axe from Sweden that came razor sharp, a handle with no lacquer or paint and was sharp enough to shave with. I think the axe should be priced a little less or need a little less love.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice axe! Another great Stihl product! Makes limbing trees a breeze without a ton of effort. Feels good in the hands and holds an edge for awhile. Only two complaints I have is that first the factory edge is way to dull, it took a lot of filing to make it correct for the application. Second the sheath that comes with it is a joke, it lasted a whole two days, you would think that a company that makes great products would have a great sheath for the edge. But other than that, great product!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Needs work straight out of the box first of all let me start off by saying this a great forrest axe, jack of all trades master of none. Also i may add that i cut a full cord of blocks and turned it into kindling with this very axe. However, the handle comes with a thick red dipped paint on the end that literally has beads of dry paint which has already cracked, the lacquer is slippery and generally no ta pleasing or a natural feeling on your hands especially if your out there swinging 3 plus hours straight. i used commercial grade furniture striper, and removed that paint and lacquer ( took 2 coats). i was able to make the fawns foot a bit more pronounced and rounded with a rasp and then i went up the grits on my sander and brought it to 150 (my favourite texture for hand tools). finally i oiled it up with tung and teak oil. Better looking, better feeling, better axe. BUT KEEP IN MIND, for 30-40$ more, you could buy a hand forged sweedish steel axe that already has a handle with no red paint :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome all around Axe....... After several months of using this Axe I'm am thoroughly impressed. I use it when Felling trees to drive wedges and it's great for limbing. It's always by my side while working in trees. The protection sleeve makes me worry less about an over strike and the weight is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Axe Ever! I bought this axe because my local dealer didn't have the Pro Splitting Axe in stock. Best axe I have ever owned. No other is even close. Splits smaller logs easily. The locking mechanism is impressive and you never feel the head move. The handle guide is study and large enough to protect from over strikes. I usually have buyers remorse but not on this axe. One of the best purchases I have ever made.I bought the Pro Splitting axe also and love it also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from High quality axe! I just finished my itnitial use of the Forestry Axe. I used it to assist my power splitter in finishing off pieces which don't completly split during the normal cycling of the hydraulic splitter. The balance and ease of use are great. I also used it to split some pieces and it is very effective although I didn't purchase it for use as a splitting maul. I plan to take it to the woods for removing small limbs and branches and to set plastic wedges. The shorter overall length (27") is very nice for striking accuracy and seems to make it very efficient. While not a cheap tool, it is built to last and is very well made. The steel sleeve is a very nice feature for those of us who might tend to overstrike once in a while.
