Thanks to its pin-straight, 28-inch handle, this ax is easy to aim. Mis-hits, however, sting. No matter: The head's wedge made quick work of splitting oak into firewood and almost never stuck. The ax is designed for splitting, though, so don't expect to clear-cut the backyard with it. [$50; fiskars.com]
