This is it. This is the culmination of all we've learned about the craft of tool making. And we believe it's the pinnacle of hatchet design. Made from top quality 4140 tool steel (AKA "Ordinance steel" because it's commonly used for making breech and barrel parts for guns and cannons) for both toughness and edge retention, and ground to within a =/-.005" tolerance, we designed the curved blade for both optimal cutting and splitting wood. We've also incorporated a nail/tent stake puller and the hammer end (of course) has our patented recessed striking face. At 19oz on an 18" handle, it's perfectly balanced for any job, whether it's pounding nails, chopping and splitting firewood, or fending off the impending zombie apocalypse. (Cause we all know its coming. And now it's official Kansas preparedness policy. True story!) This premium hatchet cuts like a full size axe yet is small enough to fit in a backpack. It comes with a top quality custom fitted leather sheath and free shipping anywhere in the USA... because it's 100% made in the USA.
Head is 19 oz.
Handle is 18 inches
Why do we say "One Hammer to Rule Them All"? Because there is no other hammer like it. This is the original Hardcore Hammer with a recessed milled insert. The insert is forged from some of the toughest steel on the planet. And because it is recessed, the milled traction surface is protected from striking anything but the nail by the smooth outer rim, virtually eliminating the need for two hammers, because it combines a finish and a framing hammer all in one. No need for extra tools to change out the striking face from waffled to smooth, no spare parts to lose or pay extra for! This is the only hammer in the world that can switch from framing to finish work just by swinging it! No hammer compares, and Hardcore Hammers are proudly built in the USA with quality that will outlast any other hammer head out there.
