This incredibly attractive axe got its name from a world champion Houston bodybuilder who happened by my booth at a trade show. I remarked to Ronnie that I didn’t have a name for this axe yet. He picked it up and said, you should call it “Attitude” cuz it has it and if someone else has a bad one this will sure fix it. Couldn’t argue with that.
It’s a favorite that becomes inseparable from you the moment you hold it. Impacts like it weighs 3 times as much, do to the superior Armory Outfitters USA tempered Damascus steel formula. The best store-bought hatchet/axe is, at best, mediocre quality steel which uses log splitting style wedge and weight to do the work. Ours actually cuts and holds an edge, chop after chop. Tested against dry mesquite wood, which is one of the hardest of all woods, it proves superior performance. Blade contour allows for suitable for slicing, skinning, and other tasks normally reserved for a knife.
The spike will make apparent its practical useful applications, like driving into felled limbs or logs and dragging them free of underbrush/debris which could conceal fire ants, scorpions, snakes, spiders, thorns, etc. you are better off not getting cozy with. Even if you never use the spike, the counter weight makes for impressively deep chopping. The Attitude takes you to a happy place.
As is true with all our axes/hatchets, once you use one from Armory Outfitters USA, you will kick rocks at all others.
There is no equal.
