For dirty jobs, save your fancy tools - use this instead. Part Hatchet, part hammer, part nail remover and pry bar, this design was originally used to close or open wooden tea crates - think India and the Empire. It's truly one of the most ugly tools made, but loved for its way with rough work. Length 13". Blade width 31/4". The rubber handle is a modern enhancement - sturdier and non-slip. It's cheap enough to allow you to get 3 and spread them around so you always have one close at hand.

Update To Previous Review
Reviewed By:   (Floyd, Virginia) 
An update to the previous review. GW promptly sent a replacement hatchet when I was able to contact them by phone through customer service. A+ to them for their customer service! I still have doubts about this tool as being very heavy duty but I suppose I should be realistic and recognize that $12.95 does not buy you a five star framing hammer or heavy duty axe or hatchet! It will probably do just fine for light projects around the house or as a spare tool in vehicle for emergencies. I plan to go a little easier on this one since it is cast and not forged. Probably a decent value for the money invested if used in context of price and durability.

Compact Handy Multitasker
Reviewed By:   (Arlington, VA) 
This little tool is a good weight and feel for an ordinary person like me, and quite versatile to boot. I just used it to break up and scrape shovel-resistant ice off the deck stairs, and started thinking of all the other potential uses it will serve as winter passes into spring.

All Purpose Box Hatchet
Reviewed By:   (Floyd, VA) 
Either I got a lemon or these are cheap Chinese junk! The head broke completely off the hatchet the second time I used it. I was backing a nail out of a pine siding board. Found the pry function very limited due to size of tool and angle of pry fingers. Had to back it with or have another hammer under it in order to have enough room to grasp nail and pry up. Can see why they are selling them in lots of three! Since I had used this one for less than half hour, it would take at least three to make it until lunchtime! Very disappointed in quality of tool. Perhaps this was just a bad one. Never got a response from GW when I emailed them to inquire if other folks reported problems. Rather disappointed in tool and company! Catalogs probably go in trash from now on.

Ideal tool to keep handy in my truck. This is the third one I've bought, and have given them to my sons as gifts. No telling all the things you can do with this in a pinch.

My hubby was pleased. He said it going to be a handy tool to have! Clever combination of tools.
