Gränsfors Bruks Hand Hatchet 413
Gränsfors Bruks Hand Hatchet 413 is made of high quality swedish steel with grade A American Hickory. The distinguishing feature of the Gränsfors Hand Hatchet is its short handle relative to the size of its head. It is extremely practical to carry in your rucksack on forest walks, or to keep in the car as it takes up very little space. The shape of the sheath, which covers the edge and the top part of the poll, also stops the axe head cutting into your rucksack. The Hand Hatchet makes an excellent scouting and camping axe. Despite its short handle, the axe can be used to fell small trees. It is also great for limbing and for splitting kindling and ﬁ rewood. Gränsfors Hand Hatchet

I absolutely love this hatchet. Excellent for woodwork. I made a paracord wrap around neck to protect the handle. That being said, I think for the money spent the mask/cover is a little cheap. That's the 4 star rating.
