    Very nice hatchet

    My expectations were high because of the look of the hatchet and the fact that it was German made. I was very happy with this purchase and have used it a few times. It does a great job chopping kindling. It comes from the factory sharp but not razor sharp. You could sharpen it more but I think it is sharp enough. I love my Bison Hunters Hatchet 🪓

    Almost what I was hoping for.

    The craftsmanship on the head and handle are very good, but the grind on the edge is so lopsided it makes it look like there is a warp/wave in the blade. The top has one side ground almost a full quarter inch further back than the other, and the bottom is the same but the sides are switched making it very lopsided. It will take some work, but it is fixable with a file and stone.

    Done right

    The head is ground correctly. No runout on the hickory handle. Sharpened well, kept the edge well. Leather is thick and heavy. I have a slightly larger GB hatchet that I this compares very well with. If I had to buy over again, I’d stick with this.
