I get what you are saying about the cheap axe. I have been looking for a good axe for some time. What I want isn't the $30 hardware store axe that won't hold an edge. I also don't want an expensive work of art that is $200. I want one somewhere in the middle that will hold and edge, have a decent handle and sells in the 80 - $100 price range.

Lodge is in that sweet spot. It is better than the poor quality Asian stuff, and it don't cost a fortune.
