Product Description

Bahco HUS-1.0-650 26" Axe
"Factory Edge" These edges are left untouched by me to save you money and let you sharpen the head to your liking.

If your looking for a more affordable high quality axe this is it.

( I would rate the fit and finish as a high quality hardware store axe of the past )

High Quality drop forged carbon steel head of 2 1/4lbs.

High tempered blade holds a great edge!

26" Ash handle

The head on this size axe can have a cutting edge similar to a Wetterlings but with thicker cheeks for better splitting.

This is a true 3/4 size axe which makes a great "Bush" axe.

(This also makes a great back up or beater axe if you already own a high end axe)
The ash handles on these axes is hit and miss on quality, the steel in the head and head pattern is excellent!

Axe Disclaimer

Axes are not built like custom knives, just about any axe will not be perfect, this includes handle grain, head alignment, wedge and eye fit, forging marks or head patterns...this is the nature of the beast.

Our guarantee is that the steel quality in the head will not fail you, if there is a temper problem we will take care of it ( does not happen very often)
We will also cover any loose heads or cracked handles right from the factory.

Once you start using your heavy duty chopping tool the care of your handle is in your own hands. How hard you swing and what you hit or miss. Wood handles have too many variables for me to offer any guarantee on them.
Part of owning and using an axe is to be able to rehandle the axe, pick out a straight grained hickory handle at a hardware store and tune your axe as you see fit.

With that said we are pretty reasonable people if you have any issues....thanks Ben

  1. A Lot Of Axe For Not A Lot Of Money 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Jul 2014

    The hang and throw are as good or better than many of the much more expensive axes I have looked at, and so is the grain orientation on the handle. The head is the perfect pattern and weight for general use and the steel is superb. The head alone is worth more than the asking price of this axe. Much like Mora knives this axe performs way beyond its price point. Additionally, it is always a pleasure to do business with Ben's Backwoods.

  2. A must have 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 1st Jun 2014

    Would pick this axe if I was limited to just one outdoor tool to have period. Great size/balance and heft. Not a lot of hard use yet but enough to know I like it a lot. Would like to see a sheath or at least en edge guard. Also would prefer it not have the hole drilled in handle but small thing. The edge that is put on is superb.

  3. Its an axe 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2014

    This tool does what it was intended to do well. It was very nice to get this sharp and ready to go right out of the box.

  4. Perfect handle length 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2014

    this is a very attractive well-made axe, that you certainly cannot beat for the price. this handle length, makes it very versatile for a wide range of practical uses. I would definitely recommend this axe to a friend.

  5. Ben's personal sharpening made the axe even better 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jan 2014

    This is a great axe if you want very high quality at a reasonable price. Made in Germany and the workmanship shows it. I have to say though that the personal attention that
    Ben adds to the axe by way of his superb sharpening job really makes the axe outstanding. Only thing that I wish it had was a quality sheath. That would be a good product for the site to offer as an option.

  6. Good head, bad handle 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2013

    I'd give this axe a 5 star review except for the handle. It hasn't broken, but based on looks it is about as far off in grain orientation as you can get. I can get a new handle if this one breaks for seven bucks, so not that big a deal unless it breaks when I'm on a wilderness camping trip. And to be honest I didn't call or camplain to Ben's about it, so I don't fault him.
    The head design is great for chopping and splitting. A very usable tool. Kind of ugly, but I stripped off the orange paint on the head and most of the orange on the handle. For the price you can't go wrong on this axe.

  7. Ideal for what I do. 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 17th Jun 2013

    The steel is very satisfactory. It holds an edge very well, even when ground pretty thin. It's an ideal weight and pattern for me. I use it perhaps every other day and have never had any problems with it. I've seen others criticize it for swelling too rapidly as opposed to a GB, but I have no problems with this and can get it to throw dinner plate-sized chips pretty easily, as well as limb quite close to the wood. Biggest tree I've cut with it was about 18"-20" diameter silver maple, which, one would think, should qualify it as a capable general purpose axe. It might do well to be a 1/4 lb heavier, but 2 1/4 lbs certainly does everything I need it to do.
    The handle I got was tough and flexible, but my one significant problem with this axe was the plastic wedge used to affix the handle. It was very annoying to remove when the axe began to work loose after much use, which is the only reason this isn't a 5 star review. But that's just how it goes, I suppose.

  8. Bahco 26 inchAx 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Apr 2013

    Great ax for the money. The hang is dead on as well as the throw. Handle is good also.The ax comes alreadt sharp and ready to go. More than the quality of this ax is the service that you get from Ben's. I have never had any problem with any orders. Shipping is very reasonable you are not paying extra as you do everywhere else. I had this ax delivered in under a week from placing order. Thank you Ben for this ax at a great price.
