PRA0308TH: German Style Hatchet


The Prandi Vintage Line includes high-quality cutting and splitting tools. Among the tools are axes, hatchets, wedges, woodcutting tools with high carbon steel inspired by traditional cutting and splitting tools from Scandinavia. The blades are accurately tempered with oil and later placed under further tempering treatment, hardening at a density between 47 and 55 HRC. The taping of the blade, made by hand with grained flap wheels, favors the movement of the blade through wood, reducing the amount of surface friction and increasing the efficacy of the cut. The sharpening, also completed by hand, guarantees a better performance of cutting of any type of wood, even more knotty woods. The German Style Hatchet measures in at 15" overall with a 4.25" cutting edge and 6.5" carbon steel axe head. The handle is made from American Hickory wood and includes a leather lanyard. Bulk packed.

About Prandi

Mr. Carlo Prandi set up Prandi C. s.n.c. in 1969 in the north Italian town of Primaluna. Today, the third generation is at the helm of the enterprise.

While the general use and shape of hand tools such as axes and hatchets have remained the same for centuries, the materials and manufacturing techniques have changed significantly. Prandi Andrea & C. s.n.c. specializes in the development of state-of-the-art hand tools, assembled from high-quality steel heads and innovative handles.

As a family-owned company, with a mission to provide clients with the highest quality artisanal equipment, Prandi stocks a broad range of top-quality hand tools. Specializing exclusively in the forging of the heads, Prandi outsources the manufacture of all other components to reliable partners, ensuring that all elements are made in Italy. Prandi's commitment to continual quality optimization is evident in their market performance in recent years.

Prandi tools are utilized in three main market segments; professional, fire-fighting operations and hobby/DIY, where design plays an increasingly important role.

By deploying fully automated production lines, Prandi is able to adapt the manufacturing capacity flexibly and generate high-volume output within a small time-frame, while still ensuring superior manufacturing quality control. Continuous development and product optimization are two pillars of the enterprise’s business concept.

Best place on the planet to buy your edged tools!
I purchased 2 hatchets from KnifeCenter. The Prandi German style hatchet and the Prandi camp hatchet. Since getting them I have used both quite a lot for different tasks. They both performed perfectly. The fit, feel, and balance are fantastic. These hatchets can spit out some wood! I also bought the leather masks for them. These too are of great quality. Although the first sheath I received for the German style hatchet didn't fit, to small. That's where KnifeCenter's support team comes in. I emailed them, and they got right back to me, problem solved, Thank You Ladies! The sheath for the camp hatchet fit perfectly. I have bought other products at KnifeCenter, all quality, never been disappointed. KnifeCenter has something for everyone, no matter the size of your wallet. The highest rating I could give KnifeCenter is 5 stars, so I'm giving 5 more stars of my own. Great company, Great support. In fact, when I'm done with this review, I'm heading over to their site and order something I've had my eye on. Thank You All at KnifeCenter.
