Stihl Pro Splitting Hatchet

rated 4 of 5 stars Extremely high quality base camp tool for processing wood. The STIHL Pro Splitting Hatchet features a premium ash handle, oversized neck, and a drop-forged steel head. The hatchet measures 19.75" with a 2.75 lb. cutting head. I am a Natural Disaster First Responder as well as a SAR tech. I am a chainsaw instructor and was looking for a more compact yet heavy axe mainly for driving felling wedges with occasional chopping   This is worn on my belt. I also wanted to use this tool at base camp for… Full review

Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe

rated 5 of 5 stars The Gransfors Bruk Small Forest Axe is a great addition to my light car camp and canoe camp kits. I had admired the Bruk axes for some time and always thought I would like to have one. They have a very good reputation and are a thing of beauty to look at. I finally settled on the Small Forest Axe as my choice for style and size. It fits between other axes I already own, a 1.5lb hand axe and a 2.75lb "boys axe". I was looking for an axe I could process arm sized wood with as well as for roughing… Full review

Gransfors Bruk Mini Hatchet

rated 3 of 5 stars Definitely a minimalist hatchet. I'd recommend a bigger one for most real hatchet work, or a quality large knife instead. I'm generally a fan of large knives for wilderness tasks. You can cut, chop, split, pry and poke with them, and I've just always had a knife. Recently I decided that I wanted to try my hand at using a good hatchet instead, just to change things up and to see life on the other side. After a little research, I decided on the smallest hatchet from Gransfors Bruks, the mini/belt… Full review

Wetterlings Scandinavian Forest Axe

rated 5 of 5 stars EASE OF USE: This is a very capable axe, and in the hands of someone who is comfortable and confident using it, there is little it cannot do. The blade shape is perfect for a variety of tasks, from chopping to splitting, and it comes with such a razor sharp edge, you can even make feather sticks with it. FEATURES: The 26-inch handle has incredibly consistent grain structure, and in exactly the right direction. The head is not actually held on with a metal pin, as the above picture shows, and is… Full review

Winkler II SAYOC

rated 5 of 5 stars Daniel Winkler is one of the finest knife and tomahawk maker in the world. A custom piece is, I believe, a 10-year wait and lots of cash. His Winkler II line was to provide a more affordable way for people to get his knives and hawks into the public's hands. Daniel Winkler is an ABS cert mastersmith. If you have seen "Last of The Mohicans" you have seen some of his hawks and knives. Each item that leaves his shop is inspected twice and is signed off on and you're provided with this paperwork. His… Full review

Hults Bruk Almike

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A small, hand-forged hatchet compact enough to pack and capable enough to make efficient work of camp chores. While the Almike has a beautiful, classic design that will please those who yearn for a satisfaction that transcends mere function, the Almike is plenty capable, too. If you are a backpacker, paddler, hunter, or bushcrafter considering purchasing a premium axe, the Almike is worthy of your consideration. Overview The Hults Bruk Almike is a small, readily carried hatchet that is intended… Full review

Gransfors Bruk Hand Hatchet

rated 5 of 5 stars Small enough to fit in your pack/on your belt. Perfect for splitting firewood or limbing downed trees. I bought this a while ago for longer canoe trips. It has since become one of my favorite pieces of kit! CONSTRUCTION:  Gransfors Bruks is known for its attention to detail. This little guy is no exception. The construction of this little hand hatchet shows every bit as much care as my fully sized American Felling Axe. The hickory handle feels smooth and is attached using a traditional wood-wedge… Full review

Klecker Knives Ti-KLAX

rated 5 of 5 stars This is an amazing, lightweight, multi tool ax perfect for hiking and backpacking. We took this multi tool titanium ax on our trek of the Pacific Crest Trail. We wanted something that was lightweight because backpack weight on the trail is crucial.   It comes with an optional handle, but we chose to use the KLAX head alone in the field to make its own handle for better weight management. It was fairly easy and quite fun to craft a branch into a handle with the KLAX head and patent pending clamping… Full review

Council Tool Forest Service Axe

rated 4 of 5 stars USA made lightweight axe, also called a "boy's axe." Great for when you are on an extended camping trip and more than a hatchet is required for wood procurement. I'd recommend this axe for those who are less concerned with weight but don't want to carry or don't need a full sized axe. I ordered the axe from Omaha Knife with a couple of options. First, hand picked for appearance and grain alignment. Second, sharpened beyond the factory edge. Through doing these things, I saved myself some time on… Full review
