“Among my most valued possessions is a tiny Colclesser tomahawk, of 8-ounce head and 2 1/2 inch bit, which, with hickory handle and home-made sheath, weighs only three-quarters of a pound. I seldom go anywhere in the woods (unless in marching order with a heavier axe) without this little trick. It is all that is needed to put up a satisfactory shelter wherever there is hemlock or balsam, or bark that will peel, while for other service I use it oftener than I do my jackknife.”- Horace Kephart
There are few men that spent more time using an axe than Horace Kephart. As he tramped and travelled through these mountains that I call home, an axe was a daily part of his life. This little hatchet is a great addition to your bushcraft kit. With a 2 1/2" blade, 4 1/2" head, and 11" handle it only weighs .8 lb. So light you won't even know it's in your bag or on your belt but will find it extremely handy when making camp, collecting firewood, or doing some carving around the campfire. Forged from 4140 high carbon steel, the same steel used in truck axles each axe is tempered to hold a good edge. Comes hafted to a straight hickory handle and includes a vegetable tanned hand stitched leather sheath. Lifetime guarantee on the head (not the handle).
