Not only do the guys at Hardcore Hammers make some of the best hammers out there, they make a pretty sweet hatchet as well. The Naturalist-Curved Hatchet is forged by hand in the U.S. and comes with an American Hickory handle. Each one is uniquely different. You may expect to pay a pretty penny for this hatchet but it is reasonably priced under 50 bucks. If you make it over to their site make sure to check out their hammers as well.
