This is it. This is the culmination of all we’ve learned about the craft of tool making. And we believe it’s the pinnacle of hatchet design. Made from top quality 4140 tool steel (AKA “Ordnance steel” because it’s commonly used for making breech and barrel parts for guns and cannons) for both toughness and edge retention, and ground to within a +/-.005″ tolerance, we designed the curved blade for both optimal cutting and splitting wood. We’ve also incorporated a nail/tent stake puller and the hammer end (of course) has our patented recessed striking face. At 19oz on an 18″ handle, it’s perfectly balanced for any job, whether it’s pounding nails, chopping and splitting firewood, or fending off the impending zombie apocalypse. (Cause we all know its coming. And now it’s official Kansas preparedness policy. True story!) This premium hatchet cuts like a full size axe yet is small enough to fit in a backpack. It comes with a top quality custom fitted leather sheath.

    Great hatchet! Honestly worth the money. Comes razor sharp! I was able to shave with it. Used it on a camping trip for an entire weekend and gave it a really good beating and it held up! I was cutting down trees with it and even throwing it!

    In the pictures you may notice that my axe looks darker; that is because I stained it with 3 coats of walnut stain. I also recommend that! It looks AMAZING. Couldn’t be happier with the product!

    I bought it for my brother-in-law for his Christmas present. He was thrilled, and yes, I can confirm that it does come razor sharp, as he demonstrated its sharpness by shaving off a patch of his arm hair with it (much to my sister’s chagrin)! He and my sister are now ready for whatever apocalypse may come our way! 😉

    Apologies to this site as I purchased it at Amazon. This is a really nice hatchet with many positive features. First being that it is hand forged in the USA. Mine wasn’t especially sharp when received but a few minutes on the stone remedied that to a very fine edge that I just couldn’t get with my Vaughan Carpenters Hatchet. The handle is very accurately hung with no gaps or voids. It balances well and I am looking forward to many years of use and abuse with this fine tool. The only compliant I have is that the handle is coated with varnish which will eventually chip and blister as all other varnish wood handles do. Preferably, a raw or linseed oil finish I’m sure would be much appreciated by most woodsmen. An oil finish is better for the wood and annual maintenance is much easier. The oil is also much easier on the hands than varnish. For this I subtracted one star. Other than that, I would absolutely buy another and recommend it to my friends. I would also recommend getting one of these over to Wranglerstar for review as he sells/promotes a lot of fine axes, hatchets and other quality hand tools.

      Thanks so much for your input! While we understand about the finish preference, raw and/or oiled handles are almost impossible to keep clean and attract dirt like magnets. This is the reason for the clear finish, as well as moisture control, as we know most prefer less maintenance than more, and the flip side is that if you just keep it inside, the finish will hold moisture content longer and will last for years before needing touch up. Direct sunlight is the worst enemy of any wood product and its finish. And don’t worry about buying on Amazon, you still bought it from us, just through that outlet! Thanks for your business, we really appreciate it!

    Love mine. Use it to make limbs more manageable for dragging; when I’m using the pole saw to prune trees. It’s also great for notching field posts and driving in spikes. Great weight and balance for hacking and whacking! It’s just as handy as all get out and lives in my truck. Thinking about getting an extra one. 😉
