I picked up this shingle hatchet recently, marked Norvell Sharpleigh Hardware Co, Diamond Edge. I think it's their #2 size from the handle mark. Around 13" long and pretty good condition.

There are some great classic hatchets on this thread, here's a modern day hatchet. I split a stack of kindling using an axe, then thought a hatchet would be a better tool. So I bought this Bear 400 as my new American made blade of the month. It's small but stout with a one piece head/handle. I'm looking forward to more splitting chores this weekend.

Is that made by the Bear & Son knife company out of Jacksonville, AL? Looks like a great user, sweet handle.

Yes, Redrider, it's from our friends in Jacksonville. I just bought it new but the stamp is Bear MGC with six stars which, if I remember correctly, means 2004 production. I can't find it in the 2012 catalog so it may be out of production - I hope not as it's a good tool.

Always thought the details of the feathers were neat in this half/hatchet
