When you’re camping, there’s no doubt about it: you need a good axe. This Half Hatchet from Yellowood Design is not only handy, as Wiese notes, “it’s a very practical size and has plenty of attitude.”
Part of that attitude is that each hatchet is completely unique, and as Yellowood states, “perfectly imperfect.” These are actual vintage American ax heads that are completely restored and set in handmade, hand-painted hickory handles, so each axe will be slightly different.
With a custom-fitted hand-stitched leather sheath, made from untreated natural hide for each individual piece, it’s not only practical, it’s a genuine piece of American Heritage. [$125; huckberry.com]
