    Which would you recommend the Stihl or Husqvarna?
    I bought and tried the Fiskars X27. Split wood good but the composite handle was not comfortable at all; therefore, looking for an axe with wood handle. Would prefer to not buy the most expense either (Gransfors Bruk, Wetterling)

    Thanks

    You learn something all the time here - this is the first I have heard of the Husqvarna maul.

    I have been thrilled with my Stihl, but a big part of it is that the weight is exactly right for me. Both the Stihl and the Husqvarna are about 6 1/2 lbs., so I would be hard pressed to make a choice between them. It would come down to how each feels in my hand.

    The Council Tool products look good to me also.
