    Just picked up the Wolf pAX 2 from tops. Hatchet seems very functional, but the knife is fairly small to be used for woodcraft. What are your guys thoughts?
    I'll take the set out soon and put it to use . . .
    First impressions are that the hatchet is a woodsman's tool and the knife is a defensive weapon.

    I was thinking the opposite. Axe looks like a weapon. Knife is a skinner and looks OK for carving. Except for the handles. They don't look comfortable

    Hi. Yes, I believe the knife is designed to be a skinner, but the handle is too short in my opinion. I've pretty much used a Case Ridgeback skinner for skinning, so the wolf pup feels odd in my hand - it has a wider and shorter handle. I don't have a problem with the blade per say - the handle just doesn't feel right. That said I'm gonna play with it this weekend - maybe I'll change my mind? Its design reminds me of several of the small "tactical" neck knives I've seen online.

    The ax does look aggressive, but I am excited about the beard blade. It can be used to perform draw cuts, and the point looks like it will be effective for creating notches and mortises. Also, you can choke up on the neck for more controlled cuts.

    I agree with the handle observations:
    For the ax, because it is flat as opposed to round/oval, but I'll keep an open mind. Also, I'm assuming vibrations from the exposed tang won't feel great . . .
    For the knife, because it is too small - like I said above.

    Maybe I posted too soon seeing as I haven't used them yet, but I am excited to play with them and get other's opinions. Thanks bore.
