Nice hatchet for your rucksack

 on June 3, 2016

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.

Could have done a better handle install

I like it and I’m keeping it but the handle was not installed well. Handle is in-line with the head, but it is in-line with one side if that makes sense. So that is to say… Looking directly at the blade straight on, you can clearly see that the handle is off-set to one side of the head. Handle grain is good. I haven’t tested it but have sharpened it. I imagine it will hold up well for use as intended. The sheath is a good but not a great quality leather. Head is coated in a lacquer of some sort to prevent rust I suppose. There is also a grey paintlike coating at the top of the head. Upon removal you can see what appears to be an aluminum wedge. I removed the lacquer from the handle as well and started a boiled linseed oil treatment. I’m no pro woodsman but overall I’d say it’s a good hatchet. I like it and am tempted to sand the head to a mirror finish.

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.

Excellent choice for making kindling from firewood

 on April 13, 2018
By Aaron Bailey
Not quite as beautiful as the gransfors bruk, but half the price and just as functional. This is perfect for converting cut firewood into kindling; especially if you have to carry it in a backpack. My eleven-year-old scouts prefer this to something heavier as they work on Tenderfoot and Second Class requirements.
