About Us

Awesome Axes is run by me, Michael Culligan. I created this project as a way to share my interest in the simple, elegant, and ancient tool that is the axe with other people.

I’ve enjoyed using axes ever since I first split wood at my grandparents’ country house. I became a big fan of axe throwing and lumberjack competitions.

This website is dedicated to informing people about what you can do with an axe and how to do it, as well as to reviews of some specific axe and axe-related stuff, such as sharpening stones. I also focus on hatchets, tomahawks, and other lumber tools.

My aim is to provide our readers with an honest evaluation of each product we review so they can make informed decisions when purchasing a new axe or hatchet.

When it comes to chopping wood, I take things seriously.

When I grew up having enough firewood to keep the house warm was crucial. Through this time I learned a lot about felling trees, chopping wood, storing and seasoning firewood, and proper maintenance and care of axes.

Through Awesome Axes I am trying to feed this knowledge and experience back to the readers to help them solve their own axe related problems.
