Featuring an innovative easily-removed sheath that still maintains a slim profile and stores neatly within the handle the Back Paxe II serves its owner with the excellence that modern technology and good steel have combined to deliver. A portable compact axe that travels well in the kit of hikers and outdoor aficionados the 9 Hatchet combines light heft and an ultra-sharp blade known for its edge retention. Its size makes it ideal for chopping kindling along with splitting small logs. With a low-friction surface coating the hardened forged steel blade of this axe slices through wood at a depth that is three times greater than average allowing for faster chopping and maximum overall performance efficiency. The coated surface also prevents the blade from sticking in the wood and its high-capacity potential prevents body strain. Possessing a shock absorbing handle that helps in prevention of overstrike injury the 9 Hatchet offers great grip and superior hand control.
