Some time ago I found an old, rusted hatchet head, sans handle, at a garage sale for $1. I took it home and it sat on my workbench for a long while before I cot around to cleaning it it and changing its shape using a handheld grinder. I fashioned a new handle from a piece of hickory and sewed on a leather wrap. Turned out to be my favorite hatchet to carry on camping trips. The hammer head works great for driving tent stakes, hammering nails , etc. Without the lanyard, it throws well too. I love old tools that have a history and show signs of actually have been used.
