Good feel and weight

Good weight and construction. Nice and dense. Wood is good quality and feels good in the hand. Head has a rustic look and feel to the metal. Leather sheath and holster feel very high quality and look very good. I wore it out today in public and was very comfortable especially with the blade turned toward my back. It also smells like you would hope, like leather, wood, and iron. I hacked apart a large fallen branch from my yard to get a feel for it’s functionality. It cuts very well and appears to hold its edge. I’ve been hunting for a good hatchet for some time and this one fits the bill.

Product met all my expectations. Thanks

Sharp out of the box.

Bought it for my husband. He loved it. Might get me one!!


This hatchet is small but packs a punch.

10 out of 10 all around

I ordered the product, it arrived before expected, the blade is razor sharp (and holds the edge). Perfect size/weight, comes with a belt holster and a blade cover. I had some concerns with my initial hatchet, but BeaverCraft responded immediately, going above and beyond fixing the problem I had. Whenever I make another purchase for any wood crafting tools, I know where to go.Thanks again. Cheers 🍻

Serious Hatchet, Serious Value

I'm repeatedly impressed with the value of Beavercraft products, and this carving axe is no exception!Where else will you find a forged hatchet for this price? Nowhere that I know of! Now, as you can see in the pictures modified it to suit my particular needs. I gave the edge a slight curve and drew the bevels out finer to accommodate my style of cutting. Easily done even by an amateur who is patient and observant. Otherwise any competent bladesmith or tool finisher should be able to help you.Out of the box the blade is sharp enough to tackle chopping duty, but remember this is a carving axe not a felling axe! It will need to have the edge refined and well sharpened to act well as a carving tool. It takes a razor edge, and appears to be well tempered.The handle is well finished. I would have preferred a meatier handle but that's a matter of preference, easily resolved when I decide to rehandle it. I might suggest charing the handle over a charcoal fire and finishing it with straight linseed oil for a better grip.Again, a bargain at the price offered.

That it's very reliable

I love the way that it looks and feels in my hand

100% quality

Vary sharp edge. The craftmenship is outstanding, feel it in your hand and you know you have something specal. Cant wait to start using it, The leather edge cover and ax holster are beautiful and fits well. Cant say too much about it. This would be an excellent gift or something to pass down.

Great service

Had an issue with the first hatchet but beavercraft has great service and they sent me another and it’s perfect. Great people and product

Bryan Hokkanen
Almost perfect.

I ordered this little axe for roughing out spoons, kuksas, and the like. It has enough heft without being heavy. The bevel is set so it bites and not deflects. It is hung tighr on a nice ash handle. As a bonus it is a nice looking little axe. Like I said almost perfect.
