    Default Estwing Camper's Axes

    Zombie post, but hey, I'm new.

    I grew up with an Estwing on my belt when outdoors. Never let me down, but never really accounted for itself either. I use a Gransfors Bruks hatchet and SFA now, and I can't imagine going back.

    Do I see a Wetterling in there, dark handle?

    Good necro bump.

    We were backpacking up in the OR Cascades a little over a week ago; ~1 ft of snow and I found our Estwing hatchet to be indispensible for firewood. All the tinder was wet, snowy, and icy so we were able to split up a sappy stump which made the best tinder of the trip. One of the best things we had up there.
    In the past we have had a light which flickered, in the present we have a light which flames, and in the future there will be a light which shines over all the land and sea.

    I grew up on the west coast where the Estwing acquits itself pretty well against the firs and similar softwoods. It was only after spending some camping time on the Blue Ridge that I took a different look at what I really wanted / needed in an all purpose axe.

    No Wetterlings. But if it's the fifth one from the right next to the Estwing, then it's this:
