    I used a Fiskars Hatchet today that I borrowed from a friend and it has inspired me to buy a hatchet. Is there any hatchet that you would recommend before I buy one. At ABSOLUTE MOST i would want to pay is $50.oo, I hope that is enough, But if their is one that costs more and is REALLY good don't be scared to tell me. Thanks, Seth

    Estwing is real good and comes in 'hand' ax size and a longer handle 'camp' size. Within your budget.

      I have a Collins camp axe with a two-pound head that I think highly of, and an Estwing No.1 with leather washer handle an integral 1 1/2 pound head.
      The Collins was cheap, but the Estwing was about $35 ten years ago.

        I have two different sized Estwings, and they are the only brand I would reccomend that is within your budget.

              am not a big GERBER man, but I do have a one of their camp axes. Performed OK so far. I use then camping to cut firewood. Two or three times I was driving on logging roads in a national forest and a tree blocked my exit. (not a big tree). The camp axe performed well those times.

                I have had my Fiskars hatchet for about 13 years and it is as good as the day I got it!

                  My fiskars is the best tool that I have bought in many years. +1 for Fiskars.

                    Snow and Nealey make what they call the Hudson Bay Camping Axe, which is really a large hatchet with the head and balance of an axe. Probably more like $60 brand new.

                      It really depends what you want to use it for, But I also vote for Estwing.I also like my multi purpose ones, Rothco makes a cheeper version but its handy when you need it.

                        Estwings are the ticket. best carpentry hammers too. i believe they have a lifetime unlimited warranty also.
