Designed from the ground up in New York City by Best Made Company, tested the world over. The Straight-Hold Hatchet weighs in at just over a pound, it has a Dayton pattern head which is drop forged and hand-ground in the United States from an American made 1060 alloy steel that is hardened to a Rockwell hardness of 48-55 HRC. The Appalachian hickory handle of the hatchet is dipped in four striking colors and is distinguished by its „straight-hold“ profile: a feature that allows for improved agility and safety. The Straight-Hold is perfect for carving duties, clearing light brush, and splitting kindling. Equally at home next to the fireplace as it is around the campfire, the Straight-Hold Hatchet earns its keep as the smallest member of the Best Made axe family.
