Everything for the garden: Hand ax Video Guide

The origin of the hand ax originates from the traditional hatchet, which in turn is one of the oldest tools and weapons in human history. So the first hatchet was a flint ax and was invented in the Nordic Neolithic (Neolithic). The stone axes were used by humans until the late Bronze Age. After that the stones were replaced by copper and bronze and the new form of the hatchet was created. The next development reached it in the early Iron Age. From then until now, not much has changed in the form of a hatchet as a tool. As a weapon, however, the shape varied greatly depending on culture, origin and age. In addition, the hatchet was invented in front of the ax and is in comparison smaller and can be used with one hand. Another difference is the shaft hole, which does not have a hatchet, but an ax already. Hatchets were / are also called "beards". Beile was also used in Germany until 1938 for the execution of those sentenced to death. This form of capital punishment was widespread, especially in large parts of Prussia. However, the hatchets were heavier and bigger and had to be handled with both hands. In former times there was also the well-known version of the hatchet, the so-called Meadow ax. It was an important tool for meadow farmers. So it was used for the construction of irrigation and drainage ditches, as well as for the maintenance of existing graves and drainage of rainwater. Another name is Grabaxt or trench hood.

As a weapon the hatchet does not have many kinds, whereby the most well-known form is the battle ax. As a tool, however, the hand ax has many forms and names, which usually refers to the intended use. Distinguish the hatchets also from the cutting edge as well as processing. So there are, among others, the following hand parts: – Sculptor's ax: Long, curved cutting edge. Wide, straight cutting bevel. Curved Stem.- carpenter's ax: straight, thin and long cutting edge. Forged recess in the hatchet. Straight handle.- Camping tackle: Small and light. Also has a hammer head on the back with flat track. Some products have recesses on the side of the leaflet, which can be used to pull nails or the like. In that regard, it serves as a multifunction tool and may have other features. – Cleaver: Used in the butcher's shop to chop up joints and bones. 30 cm long and straight edge. Balliger cut. Has a Lachangel, similar to a knife. – Breitbeil: counts as the heaviest and widest tool ax and is therefore guided by two hands. Because it is used to cut logs, it is also referred to as a "cleaver". It is available as a version for both right and left-handers. The common hand ax known today is typically used as a tool to chop smaller pieces of wood and to pull or hammer nails. Therefore, it is mostly needed by carpenters. They have a slightly curved and long cutting edge, which is usually 20 cm long. The stalk is usually twice as long and often corresponds to 45 cm in length. The hacking part is countersunk and can therefore be used as a hammer. The German version is a bit smaller. So its edge is 15 cm long and more curved.

Highly recommended is the universal text by Fiskars. It has a long-lasting and lightweight style, consisting of glass fiber reinforced plastic. The length is 36 centimeters. The hatchet is great for outside activities such as camping. In addition, it has a permanent connection between stem and hatchet, which provides more security. Another recommended product is the Gerber Beil Survival by Bear Grylls. The length is exactly 23 centimeters. The blade is made of stainless steel, while the handle is made of polypropylene. The head sheath that goes with it is made of nylon, which does not dull the blade. The hatchet is ideal for chopping wood. The last recommended product is the hatchet of Meister, with fiberglass handle. The handle end is made of black rubber. In addition, the product GS is tested.
