SWISS ISSUE FOREST HATCHET
SWISS ISSUE FOREST HATCHET
SWISS ISSUE FOREST HATCHET

The hatchet is one of humanities oldest, and most useful tools. In fact primitive sharpened-rock hand axes were used by our ape-like ancestors before homo-sapiens ever walked the earth.

Today, a the hatchet remains an essential bushcraft and survival tool; a small piece of metal insurance promising shelter, fire, and a good night's sleep outdoors. 

Apparently the Swiss government bought a warehouse full of these things and never used them. We just so happen to know a guy who bought that warehouse... and well, we thought we'd give them a try.


From what we can tell these hatchets are good to go with two minor exceptions:

  1. They come unsharpened for safety
  2. Once sharpened, they will need a axe sheath if you plan to carry one in your pack

 

We are actively looking for feedback on these. If you get some use out of your hatchet please leave a review or get in touch.

Second Swiss hatchet....buy them while you can

These hatchets are a steal for the price. Yes, they are dull as they are brand new. If you can't sharpen it yourself, you might want to rethink working with hatchets.

Sweet axe

Pretty good axe, looks nice and is in great shape. Fortunately I have access to a grinding wheel so I was able to sharpen it up a bit. I've only used it so far to split up kindling for my stove. It's definitely a quality tool and I'm sure I'll use it for more. A good tool like this for $20 bucks is a pretty sweet deal, definitely grab one if you can.

Exactly as Described.

Exceptionally clean hatchet. Came described as is. Took my time to put an edge on it, and it holds up quite nicely.
