    Husqvarna 13" Hatchet

    Hey guys have any of you tried this hatchet? The wedge cheeks seem a bit fat for chopping and meant more for splitting but I haven't had a chance to test it out yet. It seems to be pretty well made for a budget hatchet. I'm considering re-profiling it down if it doesn't perform well.

    It gets great reviews.

    If I didn't have 3-4 hatchets already...I'd own one.

    More of a firewood splitter than a x-cutter.

    Myself prefer the Estwing hatchet.

    Never have to worry about broken handle.

    Holds a good edge as a plus.

    Have had one for 30 years.

    @SOCOM42 I agree on the Estwing hatchet, never breaks, the rubber handle grip never seems to go bad, I like their hammers too.

    Lol, this may speak to how old mine is, when did the switch from stacked leather and varnish to rubber?

    You can still get leather. Very classy look.
    Just because I am peaceful does not mean I have forgotten how to be violent.
    If I am to die tonight I shall see that the night does not pass quietly.

    AH! Ok, thanks. Though after about 30 years, the varnish yellows and cracks, they aren't all that classy any more.

    I still have my Boy Scout hatchet I had when I was a kid. Still in great shape too.

    I have an affinity for axes and hatchets.

    It's also among the least expensive
