Handmade in Germany by Helko's master smiths this beautifully crafted traditional German Hatchet, the Rheinland Hatchet, is made from German C45 High Grade Carbon Steel with a handle crafted in Switzerland. The Rheinland Hatchet is lightweight and beautifully crafted, with a traditional German wide bit woodworker blade. These hatchets are made in Wuppertal Germany, near the country's famous Rhein River Valley.

The Rhein, one of Germany's most prominent geographical features, was a historically significant source of trade and growth for civilizations in the region throughout the early and later medieval periods. Cutting axes like these were a daily necessity for people carving out towns and villages in heavily forested regions along the Rhein River. The wide blade makes this hatchet exceptionally well suited for cutting work.

Each piece is handcrafted by Helko's Master smiths with over 170 years of expertise. Once the smith is satisfied with his work, the Helko Crown Logo is hammered into the head. No supplementary work, such as grinding, buffing, or painting is performed, thereby allowing each blade to proudly display its own forging marks. As no two pieces are exactly alike, each axe is truly unique and one of a kind!
