Classic Line“-Axes with mirror polished blades, lacquered Hickory-Handle with leather-loop and
leather edge protector.
Helko’s most popular hatchet captures the very essence of what the serious outdoorsman expects from a hatchet. The Pathfinder is comfortable to hold, flawlessly balanced, and unfailingly dependable. Beautifully crafted, its appearance alone will certainly make friends and bystanders envious. The Pathfinder is the perfect companion for packing, setting up camp, limbing branches, and routine yard work. The poll (opposite the blade) may be used for light hammering, such as striking in tent stakes. The head is buffed and polished to a highly reflective finish that reduces cutting friction and improves rust resistance.
