We offer a number of alternative hunting hatchets; some in Damascus steel, some of them in 01 carbon tool steel. All are razor sharp, have a nice heft to them. Many buyers use them from rabbit hunting - even ditching their knife and using these for dressing the entire rabbit. Others use for splitting saplings and making camp. One buyer bought his to use to let in pieces of green oak framework when building homes. Whatever the case they all bring their friends back to get one and they all say how jaw droppingly sharp they are. The precise design and nature varies slightly over time - ensuring you get a hatchet that is pretty much unique to you and with care will last for generations.
