The axe handle came in warped, so I have to replace it. It looks good, but it comes very dull with a sloppy edge.
Viking Shield was very quick to ship. I was impressed. Overall, I like the axe. It just needed some extra love. Plus it makes it into a fun project.
Its a good axe that can easily be sharpened fast shipping as well
