Keep this hatchet right next to the fire place. It's perfect for splitting pieces to get a fire going. The hatchet is easily managed with one hand. The head is forged and ground concave, to a very sharp, thin blade at the bit. This design helps the axe to go fast into the wood - and then split efficiently when the thicker part hits and pushes the wood apart. The axe has a 2 1/2" face and a 19" hickory handle with circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head, the head weighs 2.5 lb. Comes with a full-grain leather sheath.
