A good hatchback can compete with a hanger if you do it this way.

Afterwards you stack your wood in this woodshed as you snuggle yourself.

Short and long shaft

We have picked axes where the head weighs between 1 and 1.5 kilos. Then we roughly ended up with four axes with long shanks and three with somewhat shorter.

Easy or heavy-cut?

The axes with short shafts emphasize on the easy-clenched wood, while the long-shankers did well on heavy-duty and easy.

It’s challenging to make an ax that both works well on the easy-clipped and heavy-clipped. The ideal is of course to buy an ax for each of the tasks, but that is probably the few of us.

This we looked for

We considered how well the ax clears the different types of wood. Both how well it penetrated and how well it split the wood. Likewise, how easy it was to get out when it got stuck.

We also considered whether the ax was stable in the cut, that it did not flee to any of the sides during the split.


The shaft itself was evaluated according to how well it was to hold and how solid it was. Should the shaft be good, it must have the correct profile.

This means that if you cut it off, the cut should have an elipse shape with a good height. Then you get good control on the ax.

The grip must also be good, not too smooth. The end hook must have a size that causes the shaft to stop in the crotch when you swing the ax.

All these things make you do not have to keep your ears hard, which is a prerequisite for not getting tired and getting a tight touch in your ax.

Here’s how the test was done

The axes are tested by Olav Antonsen and Jan Olav Antonsen. The test has been done on hardwoods and the axes are tested on easy climbing and heavywatched by.


We use a scale from one to six where six is ​​best. We give no one, and no one rides for that matter either.

Simply because there are no bad axes here. Likewise, there were tough point differences when we got a little down on the scale.
