Bury The Hatchet? No, Larry The Hatchet

Say hi to our new friend Larry. He is a 274 gram, 260mm long, carbon steel, woodchopping fiend.

Each Larry the Hatchet is hand forged using 5160 carbon steel. For those of you who are not familiar, that is the same carbon steel most commonly used in automotive leaf springs.

Being made in the Great Southeast, this hatchet is known for being the perfect tool to cut open a coconut or pineapple but is also tough enough to work through wood mediums as well. Larry comes in three different designs including the hatchet, Durian hatchet, and cleaver.

The Nitty Gritty

Any good blade owner knows that the cleaning and sharpening of your blade are as important as the quality of the blade itself. No use in buying an expensive blade if you aren’t going to take care of it. The same can be said for Larry the Hatchet.

When it comes to sharpening stones, you want to use a grey 400 grit and a black 500 grit. Both of which are included in your purchase. As for the cleaning part? It is perfect for all the low maintenance lovers out there. Simply rinse and wipe the blade clean. After that, cover the blade in a thin layer of food-grade mineral oil. Then, store in a dry place. That’s it! The manufacturers remind you that patina is a beautiful way for your blade to tell the story of its life.

Bidor Hutan

As for the makers of this blade, there are lots of things to love. It is always important to know who you are buying from. This company fosters collaboration. The logo itself is a combination of both Bidor and Hutan.

The skull pictured is that of a Hutan orangutan and the swords crossing are a mark of authenticity of Bidor. The mark means that you’re getting a truly special blade that will be the perfect companion for all your adventures. Buy Here
