Hand-forged hatchets from Lee Reeves of Oklahoma. Lee has decided to retire effective October, 2015. We expect to vey occasionally receive more of Lee's gems in very small quantities and will post them here. One of the best bargains of any knife/hatchet maker. The Double-Bits are made in the Nessmuk style - one edge shaped for cutting and one edge shaped for chopping.
The head is forged using a process that dates back to Colonial times. First, the Eye and Poll are hand-forged with 1018 mild carbon steel, then 1080 is forge-welded onto the surface. This gives a head with a malleable eye and poll with a hard cutting edge.
