Great axe, but needs work on quality control

I bought this axe because I heard great things about Karesuando. Axe arrived in a cool box with a piece of Reindeer hide glued to the bottom, and a sharpener. All was good except for the Axe, the blade looked like the the fin on a whale in captivity......not that extreme but a bad grind, and the blade had a warp bending to the right. I'm sure it would still work but really poor quality control on that one..... I returned it and ordered another one. Second Axe is beautiful and what I expected it to be, except the box this time was pretty bad. The reindeer hide was not glued in, was also a least an inch smaller than the inside of the box, like literally they threw a scrap in and said..."good enough". The sharpener and the axe also have different color sheaths, one black and one natural.... again the axe is a beauty, so am okay with the other issues but for the price of this little 9" axe.....there should not be this much deviation in quality. I would recommend this axe, but if you feel like you got a funky one, don't hesitate to send it back and ask for a replacement.
