well I was at tractor supply comp and they had the fiskars billhook on clearance for 15 bucks. I picked it up just to play with it and it's actually a pretty solid tool. I was testing it on some seasoned hard maple and it has a solid bite to it. light weight, handle absorbs the shock pretty well. and you can get that big 2 handed grip on it. it was actually out chopping my condor golok.
