Hoffman Blacksmithing Camp HatchetLike all carefully sourced products from Garrett Wade, this hand forged camp hatchet stands out as an exceptionally crafted tool. Liam Hoffman's design for this small axe is both efficient and beautiful: the hand formed haft is comfortable either held near the fawn-foot style end for chopping, or choked up toward the lug for closer work with the blade. It is sublimely weighted and is capable of medium strength lateral chopping, as well as feathering a fire-stick with its super sharp blade edge. The real genius, however, is in Liam's interpretation of the shape of the axe head, and the particular finish he creates. Each mark speaks of his hammer, while shaping the head, and each axe head will be unique in that regard. The mirror polished finish on the edge of the blade is in contrast to the hand hammered finish on the rest of the head. The quality of the belt sheath is superb. It is a joy to own and use this extraordinary tool.
