When your 5-year-old son tells you that he wants an ax for Christmas, as mine did not too long ago, you compromise with a hatchet. I (my son) have had this X7 Hatchet by Fiskars for over a year now and continue to be impressed with it.
Whether I am hacking into an 8-inch diameter tree or splitting some boards into kindling, this little hatchet preforms. Only 14 inches long and 1.4 pounds, it is easy to strap to a pack and bring into the backcountry.
Between the blade geometry, the low friction coating, PermaHead molding and lifetime warranty, this is a rock star hatchet.
You can find the Fiskars X7 Hatchet here.
