Hand Hatchet


In stock


The distinguishing feature of the Gränsfors Bruk Hand Hatchet is its short, stout handle relative to the size of its head.  The handle is also specially textured for a better grip. The Hand Hatchet is extremely practical to carry in your rucksack on forest walks, or to keep in the car as it takes up very little space. The shape of the sheath – which covers the edge and the top part of the poll – stops the hand hatchet’s axe head from cutting into your rucksack. The Hand Hatchet makes an excellent scouting and camping axe! 

Despite its short handle, the axe can be used to fell small trees, for limbing and splitting kindling. It is also a preferred hatchet for carving.
