Axes and Hatchets


Hatchets and/or axes are essential survival tools if you are going to be in the woods.  The primary question to ask yourself is whether you prefer a hatchet or a long handled axe.  A hatchet is easier to pack and carry but it can’t handle big cutting jobs as well as a long handled axe.  I am recommending below 2 highly regarded hatchets and 1 highly regarded long handled axes.


Estwing E24A Sportsman’s Hatchet Metal Handle

Highly Recommended: This high quality all steel construction hatchet is 14 inches long, weighs 1.6 pounds, and has a 3 1/4 inch cutting edge.  It has a leather grip and comes with a leather sheath.  Amazon customers who have bought and used this hatchet awarded it 4.7 out of 5 stars.





Gransfors Burks Wildlife Hatchet

This is a top of the line hatchet that is extremely well made.  It weighs 1 pound, is 13.5 inches long, and has a 3 inch blade face.  It has a wooden handle and comes with a leather sheath.   It is rated 5 out of 5 stars by Amazon customers.   I would also highly recommend this hatchet if it weren’t for its high price.   But, if you want a top of the line hatchet this would be a good choice.




Estwing E45A Campers Axe Metal Handle

Highly Recommended: This Estwing long handled steel axe is 26 inches long and weighs 4.3 pounds.  This axe has a 4 inch cutting edge, has a nylon vinyl shock reduction handle grip, and comes with an embossed leather sheath.   Amazon customers awarded it a 5 out 5 stars rating.
