This small hatchet has many uses around the home, garden and campsite, from fashioning garden stakes to splitting kindling.
The pleasingly ergonomic Japanese white oak handle encourages you to hold it lower down for controlled chopping actions, like brashing a conifer, or higher up, just below the head, for smaller, controlled chipping and planing.
The grooves along the face of the head? Three on the left, four on the right, symbolising the presence of the Shinto gods in nature and invoking their protection during potentially dangerous use.
