Rheinland Hatchet by Helko (7718460801)

Handmade in Germany

The Rheinland pattern - a traditional German wide-bit blade - is exceptionally well suited for cutting work.  Handmade in Wuppertal, Germany, these hatchets are named after the region’s famous Rhein River Valley.  The Rhein was a historically significant source of trade and growth for settlements in the region throughout the medieval period, and cutting axes like these were a daily necessity for people carving out towns and villages in heavily forested regions along the river. These hatchets perform well at limbing branches, making kindling, carving, and other light and fine cutting work.
