The Hand Hatchet is a small little hatchet for quite heavy work, easily packed in a backpack, a toolbox or carried on the belt. Can be used as an axe or a knife, for cutting small branches, chop, and split sticks for camp fire, artistic wood carving, etc. The Hatchet comes with a grain leather sheath that protects the sharp edge. The design of the sheath allows you to easily carry the axe on your belt.
Forged from a special Swedish axe steel, the blades are tempered and annealed to the correct toughness. Frist quality hickory handles. Axeheads are oiled and protected by grain-leather sheath. Each comes with a book that describes maintenance and use in detail, along with photos of the craftsman at work.
