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.
