    Nearly cut myself to the bone pulling the hatchet out of its sheath…super effective 10/10 would buy again.

    Here is my video review: https://youtu.be/UUIY7PnGzvwBottom-line: The hatchet is made out of stainless steel…therefore, you will easily have dents in the blade. The hatchet does not really work well as a hammer. If you are planning on buying this hatchet for a bug-out bag, bushcrafting, etc., I would focus on purchasing a hatchet made out of 1095 – 1050 steel. This hatchet is more of an item that looks pretty rather than practical. On the good side, the hatchet is sharp out of the box.

    I bought this as a light-duty hatchet mostly for bushcraft carving. For that purpose, it works as a large-bladed knife and gets the job done. The grip is good, and it has finger indentations to allow me to hold it closer to the blade. Slicing off bark and small sliver-cuts using the center of the blade worked okay.The BAD: The finish on the edge was not done very well. The bevel was not consistent across the blade, which means that trying to split a 2-3″ diameter branch went poorly. The top 1/2 inch simply would not split the wood. The bottom 1″ of the blade is also inconsistent. If this is by design, it’s a poor design. If it is due to quality control, then it should be a message to the manufacturer. Also, this is super thin and lightweight, which means more muscle work for splitting branches.I will not be returning this because I am capable of regrinding the edge, and I like the handle. I can make it work for me eventually. For someone that does not have have that capability and expected a quality, usable item on arrival, I would need to demand a refund. I will fix this blade and keep shopping for a second hatchet to get the job done for me.If you are purchasing solely for a Bug Out Bag that you will not likely ever use, this is certainly the right price, but you should inspect the edge and split a few limbs with it before your return window runs out.
