Each to his own, and it looks like a quality piece of equipment. My feelings are nothing can replace an axe or hatchet in the woods.
Looks like you'll save about 3/4 of a pound by going with that instead of a hatchet with about a 15" handle. For me it would be too much of a trade-off in capabilities to save less than a pound in weight.
But, I'm not the one who is going to be using it! Only important thing is if it fills YOUR needs.
