- Product Description
The Flying Fox Woodsman Hatchet is a multi-use camp hatchet in the Sport Utility Line, that was developed with specific design parameters so that it functions well for wood-cutting chores, but also qualifies for competitive throwing in both major urban axe throwing organizations.
Optional Sheath - Natural Leather Mask
- Head weight… 1 lbs. 11 oz
- Bit length… 3 7/8”
- Hardened bit and poll
- The handle has a large hatchet eye, trimmed to be under 16” (Hickory)
- Leather mask is not included.
The overall design takes elements found in vintage hatchets from the mid-20th century and gives modern affirmation to those hatchets from yesteryear.
This hatchet is unique in this market, as it is one of the very few hatchets that have a hardened poll. This poll can be used as a hammer to drive nails, spikes, and other fasteners, as well as aid in the process of construction, demolition, and some mechanical applications where a slight “adjustment” is needed.
The Flying Fox is a great option for campers, backpackers, day-trippers, bushcrafters, preppers, homesteaders, hunters, trappers, tradesmen, ranchers, everyday axe enthusiasts, and competitive throwers.

Axe came white wood handle no stain or varnish which is what I wanted as I planned on staining myself , I bought 3 with this order taking a chance on make and quality, head had U.S. stamped in the steel (all 3) so that was a nice suprise, back of one axe wasn't completly ground on the hammer part ,and I wouldn't say they arrived razor sharp, but for the price, overall quality and being made in the U.S. I can overlook the small things, I can grind it the rest of the way, and always sharpen myself, not a big deal at all for the price and what you get. Would not hesitate to buy again or refer a friend to buy.
I have been searching for a hatchet for a while, finding an American made carbon steel hatchet in this price range was exactly what I was looking for. The hatchet seems solidly put together and is comfortable and extremely well balanced. If you have large hands the handle might be a tiny bit small, but for me it is perfect!
Can't speak for others but my hatchet was very sharp when delivered. Well balanced, and I like that the handle was not finished so I could sand and apply some linseed oil.
Both ends of the head showed signs of heat treating in a world where Estwing no longer hardens the striking end of their short splitting maul.
Well worth the price.
Nice hatchet, very good price and quick shipping and delivery. I had never heard of this outfitter before but I will definitely buy from them again.
I recently bought one of these on another site because they were out of stock here but I have to say that this may be one of the best values you will find on the market when it comes to hatchets suitable for bushcraft and so much more. The axe I received was sharp from the factory and required only minor attention to become as sharp as a razor. I just used it to break down an entire tree that fell down in a snow storm and was blown away with its performance. I added the mask from Killinger to make this a perfect pair. I would recommend both to anyone looking for an all purpose hatchet with attitude. The hardened pole is a nice addition as well.
