X-mas tools, edition 2018

Fiskars X21 (splitting) and Fiskars X7 (universal) axes have fibreglass reinforced plastic handles which are stronger than wooden handles. They can keep going without any problems. The axe heads are integrated into the handles and will not come off. Additionally, the handles absorb vibrations and increase grip and comfort during use. The quality is great and the axes are covered by lifetime warranty. Each axe comes with a plastic protective case that can be used to carry or hang up the axe. Axes can handle a lot of abuse and once properly sharpen will stay sharp for a long period of time.

The axe pictured below has been used for chopping wood of 2 large trees, it still looks and works OK! This is a proof on how good these axes are!

Black & Decker CS2245 corded chainsaw has a 45 cm bar and 2200 Watt motor. What I like about this saw is a long bar and a chain that stays sharp. What I don’t like is a fact that the cogwheel that drives the chain can easily melt the surrounding plastic housing. That happened to the 1st and the 2nd saw I used. I believe it could have something to do with a chain tension but I also think that the design is too delicate and fragile.
