Designed with intention, the Barebones Hatchet provides proper weight and balance to maximize your swing alongside strength enhancements such as a full steel tang and overstrike guard to maintain the integrity of the hickory handle. A sheath made of waxed canvas and leather protects the blade from the elements when not in use. Whether you use it to split kindling, clear a path, or hammer stakes with the poll end, the Hatchet helps you make a greater impact.
One of the top 100 new outdoor living tools for 2015 according to This Old House, our uniquely designed, multi-use tool is the perfect companion for all your outside escapades. Pound in tent stakes with the flat pommel base. Measure planting depth with the handy inch marks. Saw a branch or whittle some kindling with the rust-resistant, double-edged blade. But don’t forget about the Hori Hori Sheath. Durable waxed canvas and reinforced lining come together beautifully to sustain and preserve the Hori Hori. Its stainless steel belt clip supports easy carrying and accessibility, while the strong handle strap restricts the blade from slipping or moving. The Hori Hori Sheath’s open end allows for easy cleaning and prevents soil buildup, preserving the Hori Hori’s blade for years of continued use.
Clear brush, strip bark, plank wood, make kindling–all with one thoughtfully-crafted tool. Inspired by a traditional Japanese implement and constructed with heritage-quality materials, our Japanese Nata Tool unites versatile function and refined durability. The stainless steel blade and a solid steel core that extends through the length of the hardwood handle lend stability and greater swinging weight yet it still packs thin and light, making it an essential addition to any collection.
Splitting wood in the fresh mountain air has never been so satisfying. Swing the weighted head with ease as its wide angle, 1055 high carbon steel split blade keeps its edge time after time. The 1/3” solid steel core through the wood handle secures the head with a tightening hex bolt and connects it to the steel pommel end to help you maneuver easily around rooting and trenching.
Whether you’re breaking up weeds that won’t budge or digging trenches for irrigation, this stainless steel 3-position head stays sharp and accurate through hard and soft soil. Designed with an easy twist lock to collapse the head for more compact storage, this shovel can suit any yard and fit in any shed.
– BORN FROM NECESSITY –
Our shovel design is inspired by a military entrenching tool, made popular by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) in the 1930s. The Corps was set up to provide jobs for young men during the Great Depression. In its 9-year span, over 3 million people were employed to help with forest management, flood control, and various conservation and natural construction projects. This lightweight, collapsible shovel was easy to carry from site to site and was widely used by the CCC to build many of the national parks, campgrounds, and reservoirs that we enjoy today.
