Nice! I picked up a vintage hatchet recently. I'll try to get a pic up when I return from deer hunting.

I LOVE the short handled camp axes! My guide in Newfoundland carried one, did everything with it, Including quarter my moose!.I now have about a half a dozen of 'em, I use 'em all the time! Great gift!

I like handles about 18 inches long- just like the tomahawks have.
I put a longer one that I found in a local hardware store in a hatchet (my camp axe) that my Grandpa gave me when I was a kid.
I like it even better now- much better balance, etc. :)
Throws perfectly, too! 8-)

I always wondered why he gave a me (a kid) a hatchet- come to find out when he was a kid (circa 1910, and too poor to afford shoes, or rifle & ammo) all kids carried one. They are apparently one of the most useful tools hands down, as that guide can testify.

Take care of it, and your grandchildren can pass it on, like I will mine. :D
