Crafted for precision, the black steel blade is complemented by a shou-sugi-ban, American grown, hickory wood handle. Hickory is one of the hardest durable woods on the planet. General Andrew Jackson got the nickname of “Old Hickory” from his own soldiers on account of his tough, unyielding disposition. Shou-sugi-ban is a traditional Japanese method of wood preservation that dates back to the 18th century. Wood is preserved by burning it black. The burning process creates a layer of carbon resulting in an elegant finish that protects wood from the elements. Yup, that's pretty damn cool. Lightweight and compact, our Field hatchet will prove indispensable for jobs big and small.
