Ah, a friction fit, like a Mattocks or Basque axe. The design certainly is intriguing, hope to get my hands on one to test. I have a lot if gnarly, knotty hardwood around me where a some weight is advantageous.

I'm thinking about buying the Truper Leveraxe from Lowes. Can anyone tell me if it's any different than the original? Is the steel different? Thanks!

The Truper Leveraxe is technically 100% copy of the original one. The only difference is, that it is forged. The original one is precision cast. The steel is best available for this purpose.

Not to be a total downer cow, but this is also out there. The Wranglestar review of the leveraxe.


Of course, the guy has swung a regular axe since he was a little kid, so he's not a total fan. And a little whoopsie in the vid almost gave his wife summer teeth, from a fiskars axe, not the lever axe. ;) His wife seems to like the leveraxe.

Not a big fan of Wranglestar'a opinions in general. A lot of his videos seem more self-promotional than a fair review of the product of technique.

While I am not personally a fan of the Leveraxe either, you should try it to form your own opinion.

Well put. Wranglerstar has over 900,000 subscribers now and is more of an advertisement agency that gets paid in free product than a true independent reviewer. He also talks poorly about products from the Fiskars corporation because of some of the corporate politics that affected his local town when Fiskars acquired Gerber.
