The Pummel Fire Hatchet
This hatchet is built with purpose-design at its core; inspired by the men and women working to fight fires across the nation. The handle to beard gap is wide enough to hook on 2x lumber stock, combined with the ⅜” hole at the bottom of the handle that will accept a 5/16” shackle, this hatchet can be used as an emergency belay to potentially save a life. The handle scales are fire retardant G11. The hammerhead offers even more tool utility. The Fire Hatchet is a solid one-piece construction that ensures no weak points. If it is used to save a life or just gets dropped in a fire, simply recover it, send it back to me and I’ll heat treat it again, put a new handle on it and send it back good as new, for only the cost of shipping each way. High-quality and built for function, like our entire line.

NEVER put a custom knife in a dishwasher. You will be horribly disappointed with the result
- S35vn and AEB-L are both high carbon stainless steels. As such both perform well as stainless, but any steel will rust or stain without proper care
- Hand-wash and dry after use, if storing for a long period, lubricate using anything food-safe if it’s a kitchen or food knife, or any oil if not used on food

- OR any other high carbon non-stainless steel. Care for it as you would a firearm and you’ll likely never have an issue. High-acidity foods will stain these steels to varying degrees, this is normal, doesn’t present health issues and doesn’t harm the blade. The patina they develop is similar to well-aged cast iron, enjoy the process.
- I will sharpen or refurbish any blade I make for the cost of shipping both ways. Simply email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a shipping address and timeframe to get started.
