As the title says, I'm on the quest for an affordable American, Canadian or European hatchet. I've got multiple boys, so I need multiple hatchets. Probably wouldn't spring for a Gransfor even if it was just for me. I do want to avoid Chinese or Mexican made hatchets. I'm looking at Ebay for a vintage heads, and have no problem cleaning old ones up and re-hanging them. But must be the hipsters - vintage heads sell for more than you think they would. I don't have time to drive around to estate sales looking for bargains, unfortunately. I'm just looking for something classic - 1.25 to 1.5lbs and around 13" inches. Right now the best choices seem to be Husqvarna for $50 or Council Tool for a bit less. I did stumble across this US made Vaughan - https://www.vaughanmfg.com/Products/SC1-14-Supersteel-Camp-Axe__33220.aspx#.X4jA09BKjIU I can't find anyone talking about it though, and no one but Vaughan seems to carry it. I can get two for less than $30 each, and it will probably need to be thinned behind the edge. I'm fine with that. Saw the Bahco but the reviews are pretty bad. Not sure if it's made in Germany anymore either. What else should I consider? Thanks.
