UPS just dropped off my Outdoor Edge Axe-it. I was orderingsome other knives when I saw the axe-it in the catalog. The price is good and I have liked previous outdoor Edge products, so I figured I would order one as well. The head is hot drop forged 1040. The handle has a non slip kraton grip and unbreakable fiberglass core. It came with a cordura belt sheath. Weight is 1 3/4 lbs with an overall length of 11 3/4 I like it. I can't wait to put her into action.
