We recently pointed out a reliable and durable hatchet for splitting wood and doing chores around the farm. But what if you’re looking for something with a bit more…style? A bit of old-fashioned class? This Civilware Hatchet might do the trick.
The Service Hatchet looks just like your traditional hatchet, made of a drop-forged (that’s the real kind of forging) 1060 high carbon steel blade, thick and strong. It holds an edge well and is easy to sharpen. The handle is made from American hickory, a wood known for a long time for also being tough and strong. You can get it in Black, Natural Wood, or Smoke Grey. Classically inspired and built to last.
The handle is a straight-cut, meant to give the perfect balance of weight and chopping power while maintaining durability. And Civilware includes a full-faced leather sheath to protect the blade edge and head. The sheath itself looks as good as the hatchet.
It’s 13.5” long, weighs 2.5 pounds, and feels balanced and sturdy in your hand. We love the vintage American aesthetic, and it makes the perfect addition to any classic toolkit. Civilware’s goal is to build the highest-quality, most-durable tools they can, with care, precision and old-fashioned craftsmanship. Tools that work and last a lifetime. Pick this hatchet up and you’ll see they’ve accomplished that.
