The “Tomahawk”-Hatchet with its 15½" handle has a strikingly broad curved head with a rear poll for driving wedges. Great for making kindling, clearing branches, etc.
This beautiful Tomahawk Hatchet features all the hallmarks of the iconic tool: namely, a long, straight handle, and the distinctive profile of a sharply flared edge that tapers abruptly at the handle. The drop-forged head is 8" long with a broad 4-½" curved edge. The butt end is a 1"-square poll that you can use to drive wedges or pound in tent stakes around camp.
The Tomahawk is familiar to the modern eye as one of the classic implements of the North American frontier. It was used a weapon, tool, and in ceremonies—by Native Americans and European settlers alike. (The word itself derives from a pan-Algonquin root for a cutting tool.) While the form is an Indigenous design, European traders formed a sturdier, more effective tool/weapon by replacing the customary stone head with forged steel.
Our Tomahawk Hatchet will work hard in the campsite and yard alike, at making kindling, clearing brush, and even splitting smaller logs. Made in Germany by one of our most-trusted forges, this functional tool packs a lot of history into its compact frame. The 15-½" handle is made of USA hickory. A French-made full-leather blade protection sheath is available as an accessory or buy the Hatchet and sheath together for a savings. If you want a sheath with a built in belt loop, a USA made sheath is available in limited quantites.You May Also Like

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Our Maker
We wanted to share with you an inside look at a 4th generation family business that makes some of our best garden digging tools and most of our axes, hatchets, and clearing tools.
It’s located in Germany near Heidelberg, not far from the Rhine River. The factory and forge are run by Tobias runs with his wife Dovile. In my 30+ years of being in the tool business, I’ve learned the exceptional people are those who always have an eye out for quality and can easily discuss both the use of the tools, the process of making them, as well as the craftsman who work for them. Tobias fit that mark perfectly – it’s in his blood.
From the Hickory handles sourced in the USA to the forges powered by wood waste the details are considered.
