This hatchet is handmade and handforged, just like the other axes and hatchets in the Traditional line

Description

Handmade in Wuppertal, Germany, these axes are named after the region’s famous Rhein River Valley. The Rhein, one of Germany’s most prominent geographical features, was a historically significant source of trade and growth for settlements in the region throughout the medieval period. Cutting axes like these were a daily necessity for people carving out towns and villages in heavily forested regions along the Rhein River. The Rheinland pattern – a traditional German wide-bit blade – is extraordinarily well suited for cutting work. These hatchets excel at limbing branches, clearing brush, and making kindling, while also handling light splitting work. Lightweight and well balanced, the Rheinland hatchet is an ideal camp and packing companion. Each piece is handcrafted by Helko’s Master Smiths, lifelong artisans of metalcraft, using tongs on an open face drop forge. After forging, only minimal supplementary work is performed, allowing each blade to proudly display its forging marks. No two pieces are exactly alike.
