Wetterlings Scout Hatchet Details

The Wetterling Scout Hatchet is authentic to the original hatchet that was issued to American Boy scouts during the mid 20th century.  The axe is hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. Hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The special axe steel alloy makes high quality hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterling axes keep a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. These are the main reasons the Wetterling axes hold a keen edge with good “sting” longer than most axes. The handles are lathed from American hickory. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows makes hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles.  Comes with a 10 page axe knowledge booklet and collectable patch

Swedish Axe Makers

Wetterlings Scout Hatchet is hand painted head and handle do add bright characteristics, but this hatchet was built for work.  Notice the nail remover under axe head.  After being heat treated and tempered, Wetterlings test all their product by hand.  All axes that leave their facility are equipped with a vegetable tanned genuine leather sheath.

Ax was very sharp, love the vintage color scheme and nail remover. It’s a Wetterling so you know quality is top notch for it being hand forged like they did hundreds of years ago. Great for a scout or former scout or just a camp ax when taking the family out in the woods. Enjoy and go get you one.
