Fiskars 7550 hatchet is used primarily for splitting kindling and it works great but over the years we’ve used it for a variety of different household chores. Sure, you could use a larger splitting axe like the Fiskars X27 to split kindling, but the smaller frame and lightweight hatchet is a lot easier.Plus when you’re doing tedious work like splitting small pieces of wood, a hatchet is a little easier to control.
Why did we choose to purchase a hatchet made by Fiskars?
Easy……the company produces a great product, they’re affordable and we’ve had great experiences with the Fiskars product line.
Chopping Ability – The hatchet has a ultra sharp blade with a low-friction coating that powers through wood and chops up to 3 times deeper than other hatchets.
FiberComp Handle – The FiberComp handle is extremely durable and won’t break. The PermaHead insert-molded axe head won’t allow the axe head to loosen or fall off.
Ultra Sharp Edge – The blade is sharp…..really sharp. Although the blade is soft, it allows you to use the optional Fiskars 7861 Axe and Knife Sharpener to keep a nice cutting edge.
Easy Open Carry and Hang Sheath – Protect your investment with a sheath that comes with your purchase. It’s really easy to open, it allows you to hang up the hatchet and it protects the blade.
Keep It Sharp
The blade on the hatchet is soft. The soft blade allows you to obtain a nice sharp edge but it will dent or chip if you strike something hard like a rock or gravel.
To protect the blade, chop kindling on a wooden block or other similar surface. This will keep the blade from digging into the ground plus it’s a lot safer.
Over time no matter what you do the blade will eventually become dull. SKL offers an optional Axe and Knife Sharpener that works great.
