Detailed Description

Vaughan Broad Hatchet

This hewing hatchet is for fast rough shaping, dimensioning and smoothing of wood. One face is ground flat to the cutting edge, so it can be swung flush along a surface. This is a right hand broad hatchet (flat face on the left, bevel on the right). Blade is 4-1/2"; length is 15-1/2". 2-1/2 lbs.




Choosing a Broad Axe: Left Hand or Right Hand?

Broad axes (and hatchets) are described by the side of the log they cut.

A right hand broad axe is used on the right hand side of the log (when looking down the length of the log.) Consequently, a right hand broad axe has a head that is flat on the left side and a handle that deflects to the right (away from the flat face) so that it clears the log.

A left hand broad axe is used on the left hand side of the log (when looking down the length of the log.) Consequently, a left hand broad axe has a head that is flat on the right side and a handle that deflects to the left (away from the flat face) so that it clears the log.
