It's not often that the perfect anything come along, but I think I have a pretty good contender here- the be all, end all axe.

Better pics soon, but I really needed to share this with some people who I knew would appreciate it like I do

My neighbor who is downsizing gave Megan a bunch of gardening stuff yesterday and he handed me this absolutely stunning Estwing camp axe, with the old tooled leather sheath.

I believe these now come with a nylon sheath?

The balance on this is amazing!  I'm not sure I've ever held a better feeling axe, and I am very much looking forward to using it.

Anyone else have one of these?

I have one, except mine is the standard version and yours is the long-handled version.

It is an excellent small axe.

Mine is probably 8-10 years old, so I got the leather sheath but it doesn’t have the neat design.  You’re correct that they now come with blue nylon sheaths.

My father has the old version of that hatchet with the stacked leather handle.  I hope to inherit it someday, long in the future.  My father and I have both been given stitches by that hatchet, which makes it a heck of an heirloom!   :ahhh

I'm really excited to play with this one.
