Our 28 oz Camping Hatchet comes from the Tosa region of Shikoku Island, long noted for its forestry products and tools related to the lumber industry. This hatchet is hand forged by master blacksmiths using equipment handed down over the years from father to son. Each hatchet blade is a forge welded lamination of soft steel wrapped around a core of high carbon blue steel. After extensive, time consuming charcoal processing, each blade is tempered to Rockwell c64 - c65. Length of blade is 5½˝. Length of edge is 3¼. Overall length is 16½˝. Each hatchet is shipped fully sharpened and attached to a Japanese White Oak handle, with a cover to protect the edge.
