    Well I think you are on to something there! It has a 4.4 lbs head with a 29" handle. I googled the Stihl axe and there is a thread on the ArboristSite.com that talks about it: "You can find the exact same axe under the manufacturer; Gerber. Fiskars came up with the axe in the late 1980s - Fiskars and Gerber have since merged and they sell their product to Stihl. Its exactly the same product - just without the "Stihl" name on it."

    I will have to pursue that further. It is interesting the Fiskars rep didn't mention it. I will have to see if my local Stihl dealer carries it. Thanks for the info Alberta Burner!!

    A face cord is an acceptable way to measure wood.

    Only if you use the short handle on your Fiskars and watch out for your shins.

    There's nothing wrong with waiting till Oct to start acquiring firewood for that winter.

    Test results show that wood split with a Fiskars seasons faster.
