The Bakin hatchet by Mizuno san is a very unique blade. While the edge is sharpened like a carpenter's axe, the cheeks taper inwards behind the bevel. This keeps the axe very thin, making it an incredible bushcrafting and carving tool, as well as a small felling hatchet.

|Steel Hardness||55-56 HRC|
|Handle Material||Burned Oak|
|Handle Length||14"/ 36cm|
|Grind Style||Straight edge with chisel grind|
