Pros: Head Material, Balance, Construction, Weight, Handle Material
Excellent camping tool
Got this hatchet 6 months ago and wanted to use it in the field before I reviewed it. Nice compact size, all one piece construction , holds a good edge and I sharpen it easily with a Edgemaker. I do not use my knives to chop, thus I carry this tool. It is light-weight and I personally like the ergonomics of the handle, it gives good swing leverage. One con is the handle is a little thin but I can fix that if it becomes a problem. The other issue is the sheath, it works to cover the head but there are no loops for carrying or securing unto a backpack or BOB. Good price point and as usual, great service from Knife Center!
