PLUMB 1942 Hatchet with Sheath

PLUMB 1942 Hatchet with Sheath

SKU: Plumb Hatchet

The axe, as a tool was invented roughly 1.5 million years ago. This one is not quite that old, but if you know the name Plumb, you know it is a quality tool. Plumb's history goes back to the mid 1800s. This one is from 1943 as part of the WW2 war effort.

Sturdy 14" red haft holds a 1-1/2 lb head with super sharp 3-1/2" face. Nice old patina on the head with Plumb stamp with "1942".


Comes with an aftermarket sheath with a secure snap.

Since the original label has long since worn off, I have reproduced Plumb's Victory axe label, which I feel might have been applicable at that time, considering it was during world war 2.


If you're like me, you've see countless videos of outdoorsmen batoning through wood with their knives. While I agree knife batoning has a place in woodsman lore, it doesn't hold a candle to a good hatchet.

If I have a need to split wood for a campfire or limb a tree, nothing beats a good axe or hatchet. 1.5 million years of history can't be wrong.

And since most of us aren't counting every ounce or hiking the entire Appalachian trail any time soon, it's safe to say you would want the best tool for the job.
