These broad hatchets will take on the roughing, shaping, hewing, flattening &amp; smoothing of your logs and timbers. With a bevel on one side and the other side flat, you can work the tool at a low angle like a big chisel. Blade edge length is 5 inches. A finger recess in the beard lets you choke up your grip for detail work. This hatchet allows for close-spaced and two-handed gripping. Nail pull slots located on pol and beard. Includes leather sheath.
Axes and hatchets are hand-forged and heat-treated out of 4140 or O1 Tool Steel.
4140 cold finished annealed is a chromium-molybdenun alloy steel that can be oil hardened to relatively high hardenability. The chromium content provides good hardness penetration & the molybdenum imparts uniformity of hardness and high strength.
O1 Tool Steel is the original oil-hardening, “non-shrinking” tool steel that can be hardened to the Rockwell C 65 range from a low austenitizing temperature. O1 is a general-purpose tool steel that is typically used in applications where alloy steels cannot provide sufficient hardness, strength, and wear resistance.
