Hardcore decided to take a closer look at one of our best sellers, and using what we learned from developing the Survivalist Hatchet, they re-created the Naturalist, adding some new features and making it, well, Super. Hardcore started by upgrading the alloy steel to 4140 “ordnance tool steel”, for greater edge retention and better impact resistance, then shaved off several ounces to make for improved handling control and quicker swings. They then added a much-needed nail puller, curved the bit a bit for better chopping and deeper cuts, and finally, stamped our logo into the steel. We feel that this hatchet is truly befitting of the Survivalists little brother. Works better than any other for yard work, bushcraft, construction, camping, drywall, you name it.
Weighs in at just under 17oz of steel mounted on an 18″ curved hickory handle. Bit is 3-1/4″ long, over all head length is 7″.
Of course, 100% made in the USA, and as always.
