This is a handy belt-sized hatchet that is effective as a tool or a weapon. The regular grip is comfortable for chopping while the upper part of the handle can be held for precision cutting. The blade is as sharp as a good knife and tough enough to maintain its edge under stress. The rear spike is beveled but not sharpened, leaving it strong enough for jobs that require prying or puncturing.
The kydex belt sheath is designed to hold the hatchet inverted along the right side of the back. The handle rests between the spine and shoulder blade. In this position I can walk, sit, or even drive in complete comfort while wearing it and still draw it easily.
