Truper Axe - 3.5-Lb. Pulaski w/ Hickory Handle
Having used a Pulaski for years, when it came time to get a new one I found this to be the best deal available. It performs as well, with comperable quality, as the ones ranging up to 2 1/2 times the price. It's perfect for cutting roots, etc, and grubbing dirt while I'm working on our trail network. It's no wonder that this is the most prized tool with the US Forestry Dept for trail repair and fighting forest fires.

Good while it lasted!
I was using the Truper Pulaski to grub sagebrush. The mattock blade broke within 2 weeks of product purchase--wasn't doing anything radical. Defective head I suspect.

Solid simple tool
I recently purchased a 3.5 lb pulaski and am completely satisfied with it. It is a good tool for out in the yard grunt work, and is enabling me at the same time to become proficient with it prior to working as a wildland firefighter this summer. I would recommend to everyone.

I used this type tool off and on over a period of 9 years while working with Park Service and Forrest Service fighting fires. I was so happy to find this item for sale. I even held off on a project till I receive it . It was worth waiting for as it made the job of thenching through root bound dirt much easier than a shovel or a much heaver pick - axe. This is on top of my list of must have tools

This was the least expensive Pulaski tool that I could find on-line. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of this tool. The head is heavy duty. The hickory handle feels good in the hands. I bought this tool to work on trails. I was tired of taking two tools - a pick and an ax. In addition, the blade is several inches wider than a conventional pick. With this tool, I can carve out trails along side of a hill; cut through roots, cut limbs and small trees; and pry rocks out. I wish that I had bought this tool years ago. I received the tool within the same week that I had ordered it.

I use the Pulaski to make fire breaks on my timberland. It is a good, fairly light product. However, the one I received had a big gouge in the upper handle. The gouge left a sharp raised area that caught on my hand/glove every time I took a swing with the Pulaski. I used a high speed rotary sander to sand out the gouge. That still left a big depression in the side of the handle.
