Restored Small Hatchet

Restored Small Hatchet


This hardworking little hatchet was never a glamorous tool. It has no maker’s mark and came to Enger Grove in pretty rough shape. But John cleaned it up, put a razor-sharp edge on it, and created a handle that is likely much nicer than the original.

Upon completion, the hatchet was submerged in a linseed oil bath for one week.

John also made a custom sheath out of heavy leather treated with beeswax and oil, and fastened with copper rivets. The hatchet comes in a slender handmade box, made primarily from pine sawed from Enger Grove.

Note: This hatchet is smaller and lighter than an average hatchet. It is thus well-suited to lighter work.
