The axe arrived on Thursday but due to a scheduling issue I was unable to get to it until today. It is everything one could imagine and more. I believe the handle comes pre-treated with linseed oil as it has a nice darkened hue. I have yet to use the axe. What I can say is that HOB was fantastic - shipping was prompt and they were patient when I called twice for updates. I will buy from them again.
One note about packaging. The axe was shipped loose inside cardboard.For $170 I would have preferred the item be secured better in the packaging but what can ya do?
The Axe: 20/10
HOB Customer Service Top Notch!

The GB 430 is a beautiful tool. I bought this one for my best friend. My review centers on the service I received from HOB. I use disposable credit cards to make purchases and sometimes the vendor's software doesn't like them. I ordered the axe with one such card and apparently there was an issue. HOB rep called me to ask me to confirm my order so they would know I actually did order it. They were protecting me AND themselves by doing this. I verified and was informed the axe would ship that day. I received the axe two days later, lightning fast service and delivery. I will certainly order again from HOB based solely on their excellent customer service, which is very important to me. Pleasant, polite pros on the phone too. Best price I could find too.
