    This German Style Hatchet measures in at 15.75 inches overall with a 6.75 inch classic finish carbon steel axe head with 4.5 inch cutting edge. American Hickory handle. Lanyard hole. 2.25lb head. Rubber blade protector. Bulk packed. The Prandi Vintage Line includes high-quality cutting and splitting tools. Among the tools are axes, hatchets, wedges, woodcutting tools with high carbon steel inspired by traditional cutting and splitting tools from Scandinavia. The blades are accurately tempered with oil and later placed under further tempering treatment, hardening at a density between 47 and 55 HRC. The taping of the blade, made by hand with grained flap wheels, favors the movement of the blade through wood, reducing the amount of surface friction and increasing the efficiency of the cut. The sharpening, also completed by hand, guarantees a better performance of cutting of any type of wood, even more knotty woods.

    About Prandi

    Mr. Carlo Prandi set up Prandi C. s.n.c. in 1969 in the north Italian town of Primaluna. Today, the third generation is at the helm of the enterprise. While the general use and shape of hand tools such as axes and hatchets have remained the same for centuries, the materials and manufacturing techniques have changed significantly. Prandi Andrea & C. s.n.c. specializes in the development of state-of-the-art hand tools, assembled from high-quality steel heads and innovative handles.

    As a family-owned company, with a mission to provide clients with the highest quality artisanal equipment, Prandi stocks a broad range of top-quality hand tools. Specializing exclusively in the forging of the heads, Prandi outsources the manufacture of all other components to reliable partners, ensuring that all elements are made in Italy. Prandi's commitment to continual quality optimization is evident in their market performance in recent years.

    Prandi tools are utilized in three main market segments; professional, fire-fighting operations and hobby/DIY, where design plays an increasingly important role. By deploying fully automated production lines, Prandi is able to adapt the manufacturing capacity flexibly and generate high-volume output within a small time-frame, while still ensuring superior manufacturing quality control. Continuous development and product optimization are two pillars of the enterprise’s business concept.
