This hatchet really is the best hatchet I've used to date. For a 1lb. head it truly performs above it's size. Making it an ideal hatchet to carry on outings. Obviously it's a hatchet so processing a lot of big wood for a keep warm fire in the winter won't be it's strong suit. But for warmer weather or outings where you won't need to process a lot of big wood this is hard to beat. The pic above was about a 4" wide dead pine tree. This hatchet felled it in about 30 seconds.
This hatchet is easy to carve with. It's light head doesn't wear you out at all. Here's a roughed out shape of a spoon carving in progress.
I find this hatchet is the perfect companion with a good woodsaw.
Well this hatchet certainly has lived up to Gransfors Bruks reputation so far. It really is a finely crafted tool. I find it performs great and looks great as well. You can't ask for more. It's small enough to fit in pretty much any pack and gives you great versatility in the woods. You can do a lot with a good hatchet if you get the skill down.
I highly recommend this hatchet. It's a keeper
Thanks for looking
