These small hatchets and tomahawks are light enough to be wielded with one hand. They have a shorter handle than a two-handed axe and therefore require less room to swing, making them ideal for camping, hunting, landscaping, and other outdoor activities.
Well suited for working in tight spaces, hatchets are small, lightweight chopping tools with a sharp blade. They typically have a shorter handle and larger head than tomahawks and are a good choice for tasks like chopping small branches, opening holes in drywall, and removing shingles from a roof.
Most often used for throwing competitions and hunting, camping, and outdoor applications, tomahawks typically have a smaller head and a longer handle than hatchets. Cutouts on the blade help decrease the tool's weight and can be used for prying tasks.
