It does go down to $30 regularly. Good blade, niche product, too heavy to hike with, too light to process anything larger than dried, pre-split cords into kindling. Useful around a campsite if you're car camping, but invest in the companion axe (x17) as well if you need to split anything green or wet.

use it on my atv for clearing small trees/brush ...super sharp will go through a 3 inch tree like butter..I also have a decent quality portable camping saw and I don't even use it anymore on small trees as it takes so long compared to this hatchet

If you could only recommend a single tool for camping (provincial parks etc - no backwoods), the Friskars x17 is the one?

No, I'd get something with a wooden handle or single piece steel and some weight behind it. 16-20" is a good length though, 2-3 lb. is a good median weight. If a fiberglass handle snaps then the axe is garbage, but you can easily replace a wooden handle.

The linked one above is ~1.5 lb. and fiberglass-like. It's in that grey area where you need to put a lot of strength into a swing to get a result but it's still too heavy to be included on a longer hike. You can get knives which have more utility but can process kindling just as effectively.

Husqvarna makes a good hatchet (a bit short, but chops very easily) and Estwing is just a solid brand all around.

I have one of these for car camping. It sucks for chopping the firewood.

It's good around the house for chopping 1" branches though.

I have the x11, recommended by a really outdoorsy friend. For context I am not particularly skilled with an axe,nor an I a strong guy.

I'm the past I've had all manners of hatchets, axes and mauls. All metal, fiberglass and wood.

I first tried camping a few years ago, exactly as you described - Ontario Parks, no back country, just buying bags of wood from the park office.

I brought my princess auto hatchet. It works terrible to split the wood. I felt unsafe and really had to work at it.

Bought the x11 after complaining to my skilled friend. It is AMAZING. I honestly couldn't believe how well it worked. Better than any axe I've used in my life.

The wood splits on its own when it sees me coming ;)

Kidding aside, I skip the really knotted pieces, but otherwise it does what I need. Most importantly it feels safe.

These have lifetime warranty on them as well.

My 2 cents.
