but the steel is great, the wood handle grain is super
I read previous reviews so I wasn’t surprised. The head angle is not aligned with the handle it’s off by abit, but the steel is great, the wood handle grain is super. I love that’s it’s made in the USA, the leather sheath is from India but is of very good quality. The edge had to be sharpened, which clued me to the quality of the steel. Hatchet fits like an arm extension, it is a working tool to go in my kayak.

I haven’t had a chance to put this hatchet to work, yet; I purchased it as a lighter-weight alternative to my Hultafors Hunting Axe. This tool is effectively a better-made, grownup version of a “Boy Scout” camp hatchet. The head is well-fitted to the handle, the poll/butt has sufficient heft and surface area for pounding tent stakes, and the steel “seems” to be of good quality (time and use will tell). The sheath is formed from sturdy leather, and has a snap fastener-style flap that completely encloses the head. You will have to remove the sheath for use as a camp “mallet.” Since there’s probably some shoppers who’d like a better look at the sheath, I’ve attached a couple of pictures for reference; including a look at the belt sleeve. I attached mine to my backpack, as intended, so this wasn’t a concern, for me.
