Having a decent campsite hatchet to help clear the ground and produce kindling for the evening cook-fire is at the heart of the outdoors experience. Like most tools, the more costly ones work better, but price cannot, and should not, be ignored. If you cannot resist temptation to have and use the very best, the premium hand-made Bavarian Hatchet is for you. The Hickory handle is made by a family of historic coach makers. The specs are weight 1-3/4 lbs, cutting edge length 3-1/2" and handle length 10".
