New Hacky, Choppy Thing

Had to order something from Sportsman’s Guide, and threw this in to round out the order and make their insane shipping make sense:
https://www.sportsmansguide.com/product/index/swiss-military-surplus-hand-hatchet-new?a=792367&_br_psugg_q=hatchet
(It was $15 on sale when I ordered)

After paying $10 shipping, and waiting 10 days, it finally showed up:



This is a pretty handy hatchet/ hand axe!  I’ll be cleaning up and refinishing some stuff to make it cooler and handier.   Probably making a sheath as well, since it came with nothing.  It also came about as sharp as a butter knife.  I’ll get it on the grinder and establish a bevel and start polishing this up soon.

    I'd order one myself, except I already have two hatchets. Don't need a third...

    Carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it, you may shoot it. If you shoot it, you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody – and he finds out about it – he may be very angry with you. --Jeff Cooper

    Nice!  Will come me handy for selective clearing in the new place!

    I suppose I could hold one in each hand, and balance a third on my head...

    You do have talents. I just buy them, clean them up and look at them.
