Whether you are preparing wood for the fire, camping or even gardening this small hatchet will serve you well. In the arctic this hatchet is often used to fleece moose and reindeer. As well as doing many of the tasks associated with a good bushcraft knife, the heavier blade of this small hatchet will lend itself to other tasks and is ideal for those looking for a good camping hatchet for preparing kindling.
We have used this hatchet extensively for a number of years in the wilds of Kent ;) as a camping hatchet and remain impressed. It works well beyond its dimensions and is ideal for light work around the camp, preparing food, skinning and sectioning and many other applications where a knife and baton would otherwise be required. As a small survival hatchet, it is unobtrusive and does what it was designed for.
It is supplied with a high quality leather belt holster and diamond sharpener with its own leather case and is presented in a quality presentation box, lined with reindeer hide.
Aside from being a high performing hatchet to rely upon, the Karesuando small hatchet is also a work of art and is made using stainless steel, moose bone, reindeer antler, curly birch and cowhide. This hatchet (along with its big brother) are probably the highest quality of form and function available before getting in to the realms of custom forged axes and hatchets. We're big fans!
Weight about 350 grams, length of about 24cm.
Wood is a natural product and some variation of grain and colour will occur in each hatchet.

When you actually see this hatchet in the flesh you will be amazed at the beauty of it, it took me back to my first ever girlfriend when she undone her bra and all i could do was look at em, then you touch em, you have no idea what else your gonna do with them, but the look and feel of them is all that matters, you'll never forget your first grope and you'll never forget your first Karesuando hatchet. Oh and the service from Mark was superb.
It’s is fantastic and sits under my wood Burner.
This small axe I keep on my trapping belt and it as become like my leather man so useful ,the quality and workmanship is second to none
Ordered this on a Friday at 4.30am, as you do! It was a few days before Christmas and was a gift for myself. Didn’t think anything about getting it before Christmas due to last posting dates. Mark emailed me and followed-up with a phone call to ask if it was a gift for someone as he couldn’t guarantee that it would be there in time. It was delivered the next day. Fantastic example of going the extra mile. On opening the package I can honestly say, you won’t be disappointed with the presentation, you will definitely smile! Even my wife and two daughters loved the look of the hatchet. Super sharp straight out of the box and a delight to use. Only just started creating a spoon but can already tell this is an exceptional piece of kit that I will treasure dearly. Quality service and excellent selection of products.
This axe is a piece of art. It is made to the highest of standards. I have been impressed with the quality of materials and it's design. I have not used it yet but can't wait to give it a try! The ethics and values of the company goes into even the packaging of the axe, using only recyclable materials. This is awesome! If you are looking for a high quality items then this is the place to come for sure. On top of this Mark was extremely helpful in answering all my questions so top quality customer service too!
