Best Made updates its axe collection with a new model, the Straight-Hold Hatchet. The most compact axe in their lineup, the hatchet comes in at just over a pound and like all things from Best Made is so beautifully crafted you might have a hard time using it for its intended purpose. 

Featuring a Dayton pattern head that is forged and ground in the US from American-made 1060 alloy steel, the blade is complemented by a carefully cratfted Appalachian hickory wood handle that is lacquered and dipped in a choice of four bright colors. 

$85, available now at Best Made
