If your chores don’t regularly involve heading out into the backyard and breaking down a bunch of lumber or clearing out downed trees on backcountry paths, just a quick look at Best Made Co’s Straight Hold Hatchet will make you wish they were.

Every part of this straight hatchet has been designed and built in house by the New York based company – from the handle, made from a Lacquered Appalachian hickory given a hand-dipped color finish on the tip, to the drop forged 1060 steel head. Measuring in on the Rockwell hardness scale at 48-55 HRC and weighing only a little over one pound, it’s an easy carry for when you’re heading out to clear light brush, split kindling, or carve down some wood. Whether you are going to add this to the toolbox or keep the C.C.G.F. bridle leather blade guard on there and keep it as a design piece, this hatchet is a great grab for $88. [Purchase]
