J2 Steel Powder Coated Splitting Hatchet with Leather Cover

Jonathan’s Hot Take:

This hand-forged splitting hatchet is the perfect tool for quickly breaking down small straight-grained logs.

The wedge-shaped head pries logs apart with a quickthwack, and the stocky handle really lets you wail on it.

An embossed, snap-on leather cover is included to protect the cutting edge (and your fingers).

The maker of these tools has been manufacturing high quality woodworking and carving hand tools in Pakistan for over three generations. 

All their tools are hand-forged, and as a result each tool is unique and may vary slightly in appearance from the photos… but that’s what makes ‘em special.

I’ve been absolutely blown away by the quality of the craftsmanship. Not just in how well their tools work — but how friggin’ cool they look.

Whether you’re doing green woodworking or fine furniture making, these tools are sure to become some of the most prized in your shop.
