Nice little hatchet
I received this hatchet as a gift for Christmas. My son and I like to fish and hunt together and we always like a new knife, hatchet or machete. The first thing I noticed after opening and inspecting it is how sharp it is out of the packaging. This thing is razor sharp. It has an edge like a good knife more than a hatchet. I believe it is sharp enough to skin an animal or fillet a fish with it. The handle has a nice grip and there are finger grooves high on the handle. This works great if you need to choke up on it. I chopped some wood, easily created thin wood shavings and made a fire in the back yard with it the hatchet works well. The hatchet is very thin. This makes it hard to split wood or use as a hammer. It is not impossible but it takes a little more work.Pros: nice grip, razor sharp, nice sheath, holds an edge well.Cons: To thin and lightweight for splitting wood or using as a hammer.
