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. We already offer several superb small Swedish Wetterlings hatchets (see the Hiker's Belt Axe & the Camper's Hatchet). Here are two more - at additional price points. Like most tools, the more costly ones work better, but price cannot, and should not, be ignored.

The Utility Hatchet is made by Condor in El Salvador - a very well respected blacksmithing firm. It weighs 1-1/4 lbs, has a 2-1/2 " long cutting edge and an 8" handle. You'll be pleased with it. However, 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". The Condor Hatchet comes with a leather sheath. One is not yet available for the Bavarian Hatchet.

We are proud to offer such a clear range and choice for our customers, but the Bavarian tool simply takes our breath away. It's gorgeous.

    Tim, 1/29/2014 I bought the Bavarian hatchet looking for something smaller than the full size single bit axe I was using to cut kindling. First time using the hatchet, I found the head was loose and the edge would not stick in the wood meaning I had to swing the hatchet with force at the piece of wood I was holding with my other hand, putting my thumb and finger at risk. And even then, I found that the shape of the head made it hard to keep it in the wood and finish splitting off a small piece for kindling.

    Thank you for your review on our Bavarian Felling Axe. We are sorry that you had trouble with the axe head becoming loose. Because wood swells and shrinks in different weather conditions, an axe head will from time to time become loose. When this happens we recommend using a hammer or mallet with a punch or nail set to drive the wooden wedge into the handle tenon to improve the fit. We appreciate your feedback and we will now include instructions to accompany each order for this item.
