Pity the cutting edge was chipped.

This arrived new well packaged, but when opened I found the cutting edge chipped from manufacture, plus a poor ground and rolled cutting edge - so not sharp. Not good on a new so called quality steel ground edge axe.

Otherwise except for scuffed paint and a bit battered looking it appears a good axe if it was sharp.

I haven't used it yet, so this review is as seen new.

As other cheaper axes are nicely ground and sharp, I would not recommend this 'Faithful' hatchet or brand. It is not quality as described.
