Just my luck I received an axe with the bit misaligned towards the left of the handle, I emailed woodcraft but got no response so I guess that's that. While the axe is still functional it's a shame that such a careless mistake degrades an otherwise nice axe, especially when I have $35 axes with near perfect alignment.
