THE RHEINLAND HATCHET

Regular price $79.00

The Adler Rheinland Hatchet is an impressive blade for a reasonable price. Adler was founded in 1919 by Josef Schmitt. Ever Adler Axe now bears the “JSW” mark—the “JS” to honor Josef Schmitt and the “W” to signify its time-honored origins in the small village of Wiesental (located just south of the current factory  in Waghäusel). In other words, this isn't your standard-fare hardware store axe. This blade has character, history, and craft. 

The head shape is the German “Rheinland” pattern which offers a slightly larger, curved cutting surface. The ergonomic handle is hewn from US hickory and painted with a unique anti-slip paint pattern for better grip. Each hatchet comes with a heavy-duty leather sheath and a cotton storage bag. Like it's slightly larger brother, the Yankee, the Rheinland is unrivaled at this price point. 

One more reason to swing an Adler: The Adler paint factory is water-based and wood waste is used to generate the energy (up to 700KW) that runs their factory. Pretty Cool.
