An ideal combination of shape, weight, and balance are coupled with a single-bevel blade to make this Japanese hatchet the perfect tool to take on your next camping trip. Traditional hatchets are double beveled, meaning that both sides of the blade are angled to create an edge. Single beveling one side of the blade effectively doubles its sharpness, by cutting the edge angle in half. Very compact and easy to use. 7" blade. Weighs 1½ lbs. 440 stainless steel and wood handle. Imported.
