These two Steel hatchets are terrific around the house or the campsite. The Yankee Hatchet is small enough to toss into a backpack or bag for your next camping trip, and is great for splitting kindling, chopping small logs, etc. Use the poll to drive stakes or straighten bent tent poles. It comes with a small leather blade guard as standard, but we now have a USA-made custom full leather sheath with Brass star-rivets for it. A belt-loop allows for the sheath and hatchet to be carried comfortably.
The Scandinavian Splitting Hatchet’s handle is longer, to provide additional momentum when chopping, but light enough for kindling, and smaller branches. The unusual shape of the face/cheeks helps prevent sticking. The heads of both are secured with specially shaped Beech wedges and further anchored with Steel ring wedges – these aren’t going anywhere. High-visibility red color on the handle ends makes them easy to spot on the forest floor.
Made to our specifications in Germany by a well respected foundry, each comes with a US-made leather sheath. Highly recommended.
