A Small Iron Hatchet

Here is a small hatchet made from 19th century grain elevator wrought iron with W1 tool steel edge and hafted with hop hornbeam (locally called ‘ironwood’).  The total length including head and haft is just over 13″.  The head measures 4.25″ from poll to edge. The cutting edge measures 2.25″.   This little axe will make a wonderful camp tool.. but could also be used in a historical re-enactment context. The small size is made for in a lot of mass behind the cutting edge.  It also throws very nicely.  The shape is inspired by various ancient small working hatchets as well as the francesca throwing axe. There is a 25kt gold wire inlay for my maker’s mark.

I’m asking $250 and will come with a leather mask (sheath).  Shipping will be calculated based on location.
