STORY

Made entirely in the USA, The Best Made Hand-Painted Straight Hold Hatchet weighs in at just 2 pounds, making it mighty in small measure. The Dayton pattern head is drop-forged in Lake Waccama, North Carolina, from American-made alloy steel, and the fine-grain hickory handle is hand painted in Winona, Minnesota, with striking colors that each tell a story. Distinguished by its “straight hold” profile, The Best Made Hand-Painted Straight Hold Hatchet allows for improved agility and safety. It is the perfect companion for carving duties, clearing light brush and splitting kindling. Equally at home next to the fireplace as it is around the campfire, the Straight Hold Hatchet earns its keep as the smallest member of the Best Made axe family.

 

NOTES

The straight handle greatly improves the versatility of the hatchet. As seen on a traditional carpenter's hatchet, a straight handle makes either the blade or the butt end of the hatchet head equally effective. For carving tent stakes or pounding them into the ground, the Straight Hold Hatchet has an infinite variety of comfortable hand grips. Due to its straight orientation with the tree's growth, the handle of the Straight Hold has exceptional strength. Please note that every hatchet is unique, as grain patterns vary and will not match what is pictured here. Our hatchets are hand-ground on a coarse grinding belt, and it is left to the user to finalize the sharpness of their hatchets. We suggest a fine metal file, which will quickly dress the edge ready for use, and will make short work of resharpening as the edge wears. Our Straight Hold Hatchet will be sharp, and it will bite if you aren't careful! Always be mindful when using a one-handed blade.
