The saddle hatchet is inspired by the father of my best childhood friend. Craig shivers was an amateur blade smith in the south fork valley outside of cody WY. he made what he called a saddle hatchet which consisted of a long rectangular blade and a narrow full tang handle which always had beautiful hard wood slab grips. I've taken that design and tweaked it. we offer parachord wrapped handles as well as wood handles also a feature of fang mountain is the extended cutting edge to the front, this allows for more diversity in different cutting applications. as always each hatchet comes wrapped in a costume fang mountain leather scabbard made by yours truly.
