S.A. Wetterling 16H Small Hunters Axe Review

Out in the bush, it is practical to bring an average size hatchet axe for clearing and better visibility. Great for improving your shelter and chopping some wood to start a fire. The S.A. Wetterling Hunter’s Axe is delivered with a hickory handle and a leather sheath. This axe feels right in the hand, looks just like an axe should and works perfectly. The balance is just right. The head is just the right weight to split up to 8inch logs and if you split from the side as opposed to the top, you can get such great control of the cut. The handle is not as polished, but with a little linseed oil, it is good to go.

The forging of the head is a classic with great steel and very sharp out of the box. The S.A. Wetterling 16H Small Hunters Axe has perfect balance and blade angle. The steel is hard enough to hold a good edge and can be easily sharpened. If you had to pick one tool to take in the back-country this would be it.
