Wieght? Cross sectional picture of the blade
Blade thickness has everything to do with bight depth possibilities. How thick is the blade one inch up towards the hafting of the handle from the edge? How heavy it is will determine how much fun it is to pack in and how fast you can move it, how often you want to swing it. I lighter, thinner hatchet sharpens more easily and works longer without fatigue in fine work of the rustic carpenter. Light hatchets may even be used upside down without the threat to the bursa of the elbow. What is your data. As I own a few hatchets from Norlund, defunct, I have weight and thickness preferences. I can't buy one based on data given. Marbles brand name is no longer an indication of engineering.
