Made famous in a plethora of Kung Fu movies (both western and eastern made), this devastating Chinese styled hatchet features a drop-forged head with a differential (hard edge-soft body) heat treatment and a four inch cutting edge with sharp corners. The handle is straight-grain American Hickory imprinted with "Axe Gang" (or at least that's what the manufacturer, Cold Steel, tells us - for all I know, it says "Yankee Go Home". Can anyone verify the translation?) Makes a great hand or throwing axe, but you already know this - you've seen the movies.
(also available is an indestructible polypropylene training version.)
