Prandi Piemonte Axe - 300g
These axes are very reminiscent of your typical trade axes Europeans would have taken to the Americas and are an extremely useful set of tools.
If, like me, you are decidedly un-impressed with the sheer cost of Swedish Axes now you may want to look elsewhere and this is where you should be looking. With Countries like Germany and Italy producing equal or even better quality products there is no need to pay twice the price?
Prandi make some truly excellent products and I am really impressed. I am especially impressed with their "Piemonte" style axes and it is no wonder that this rugged and Alpine region of Italy produces such tried and tested, hard working tools.

Good starter axe
Needed a little bit of a touch up when I received it which is good because I got practice at sharpening an axe. The axe is a pressure fit head and is fitted really well no wiggle at all and doesn't seem to want to budge at all. Couldn't resist so went it to the garden to try some chopping and am really impressed for how light it is it chops really nice with it's nice thin blade. Definitely looking forward to putting a lot of mileage on this :) absolutely wonderful service as well
