It came a little bit rough around the edges, but that’s what the reviews all said and I was expecting it. Just sanded and oiled the handle and it already feels like it’s worth another 20 bucks. When I get around to sharpening up the blade, it’ll be up to a Bruks*! 

I’ve never done any wood finishing, it was kinda fun to see it go from “serviceable” to “smooth as a baby’s bottom.”

*ok, probably not, but still a dandy Swedish axe for half the price
