A hatchet (from the Old French hachete, a diminutive form of hache, 'axe' of Germanic origin) is a single-handed striking tool with a sharp blade on one side used to cut and split wood, and a hammer head on the other side. Hatchets may also be used for hewing when making flattened surfaces on logs; when the hatchet head is optimized for this purpose it is called a broadaxe.
A hatchet should not to be confused with a hand axe, which is a small axe meant to be used with one hand. Technically, a hatchet has a hammer head on the back side. A hand axe, like a normal axe, has a broad flat area on the back side.
Hatchets have a variety of uses, such as tasks normally done by a pocket knife when one is not present. The hatchet can also be used to create a fire through sparks and friction. Hatchet throwing is increasing in popularity.
Burying the hatchet has become a phrase meaning to make peace, due to the Native American tradition of hiding or putting away a tomahawk when a peace agreement was made.
I believe it was made in 1924 and is the Boy Scout hatchet.
14 x 4 5/8 × 3"
The handle has some missing wood from overstriking, yada yada.
I inherited it from a neighbor years ago and just don't need.
Meet at Sportsmans on 82nd.

I found this poor little guy at a garage sale. $.50 later and a bit of elbow grease and I think it's ready for a handle!
This case hardened pattern is not easy to get on camera. The colors really dance around though.
After this is finished up, I'll need to make a matching bird and trout...
Small hand hatchet, 9 3/4" Handle appears to be plastic (stag style, maybe bone??)

I don't have much use for this guy, and we're moving soon and I don't want to take it with.

I have an Estwing Stainless Steel camp hatchet with custom laser engraving on the head...it was a promo run from a small business. It has rarely been used, if at all, although it should be cleaned up on the head...the edge is still factory sharp, and the handle is a stacked leather washer type...
.....whether in the head or in the ground tomahawks, trade axes, and their association with the frontier, have always held a sort of fascination with me.

I don't see any thread for axes.
Here is what I got.
First I was thinking of buying Fiskars, but this one had just as good reviews. Also, the Trial Boss has some serious Viking look and style, the Fiskars is maybe also good, but I wouldn't be too proud to own one of those.
