Hardcore Hatchets by Hardcore Hammers

Hardcore Hatchets by Hardcore Hammers

Anyone that spends a great deal of time in the Outdoors knows the value of a good hatchet.  Hardcore Hammers have pretty much perfected the Hatchet and made it into a make-shift hammer as well, combining two of the most commonly used camp tools into one.  We tried out both models offered by Hardcore Hammers (Hatchet and Minihawk) over the last month and we feel you’ll be hard pressed to find anything better for under $50!  Both the Hatchet and Minihawk are offered in Natural or Gunstock finish handles as well as curved or straight.  Each hatchet is handmade in the USA and that means that no two hatchets are alike.  These things can take abuse and have stood up to ours while laughing in our face!  They look cool and might possibly be the John Wayne of Hatchets!  Here’s a look at both models.

The Hardcore Hatchet: $45

The Hatchet (pictured above in the background) model looks more like the traditional head (19 oz.) on an 18″ American Hickory Handle. The back of the Hatchet head has a 6 sided blunt end that can be used for hammering.  One swing of this beast is enough to let you know that it’s a working man’s hatchet.  The fact that it looks badass is also a bonus! Several swings of this Hatchet gives you the feeling that it’s the only one you’ll ever buy.

The Hardcore Minihawk: $42

The Minihawk (pictured above in the foreground) harkens back to the movie “The Last of the Mohicans” with a narrower head (17 oz. 2.25″ blade) but still includes the chiseled hammer head on the back.  It too functions flawlessly and is our “go-to” piece of equipment for scouting and hanging stands.

The Sheaths:

Both the Hatchet and Minihawk has it’s own custom sheath (sold separately) and are both handmade by Saddle makers in Montana.  The Sheath is stamped with the Hardcore Hammer logo and fits each head perfectly!


There are three undeniable facts about these hatchets: 1) They are extremely durable and will most likely outlast you! 2) They function incredibly well with a feel and balance that easily becomes a part of your hand, and 3) The price is far below what you’d expect to pay for such a beautifully crafted tool. They both double as hammers which make this tool even more useful around the house and camp.  Whether you’re at camp this summer, hanging stands, or just splitting some wood for the fire, you can be assured that the Hardcore Hatchet and Minihawk will hold up to the task and look damn good doing it!
