    My vote at the moment goes to GB Wildlife Hatchet. Here's mine.

    I've been good about telling myself I don't need one of these sweet little hatchets. The few I've handled were amazing. If I bought another axe right now this would be it.

    It's the "Forte", and I designed it for Woox under contract. Initial release was with a 22" handle for pack-friendly length, which is the one that was reviewed in the magazine, but a 28" version is also available now. Replacement handles will be available in about two months, and then they can be swapped on the fly as circumstances dictate, thanks to the slip-fit eye. Hardened poll, and the high centerline is made using convergent true bevels so you can't ever sharpen back into thinner zones like on phantom beveled axes.

    The reviewer notes that the mask (which I didn't design) doesn't fit well, but he made the mistake of putting it on the axe like the folks at Woox did when taking the product photos, and they messed up and did it wrong. The strap does fit wrapping under the poll, but needs a slight stretch when new for it to reach. A firm tug is all it takes to get it to reach the snap stud and then it sitting on the axe causes the leather to relax pretty quickly and take the right length permanently.
