I've had this little hatchet for a few weeks now. Seldom have I had a tool give me so much pleasure. I love to look at it as it sits by the fireplace. It makes me happy. And using it is a whole other hatchet experience — it's razor sharp and cuts beautifully. It makes me want to split wood or sharpen stakes. Hey, I think I need to trim the branches on that dead oak I'm about to cut up for firewood.
Once in a while, a tool has just got it.
It's hand-forged, of Swedish steel (not made in China, by golly), by Husqvarna, the chainsaw guys. They also make a larger hatchet (this is definitely smaller than a normal hatchet). $39.95
Here is a link to some exquisite Austrian hatchets and axes (thanks, jhm!), but they are way more expensive.
