The Best New Backcountry Hatchets: Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet

One of my favorite chores around the campsite is to chop wood for the fire. What’s the best tool for the job?

The Best New Backcountry Hatchets: Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet

All you have to know is that a Swede hand forged this hatchet just as Gransfors smiths have done since 1902. Given its 13.5-inch length, this tool seems to fit into the “axe” category, not the “hatchet” one, but who are we to quibble.

Length: 13.5
Weight: 1.0 pound
$112
