Designed as part of a project focusing on communicating with a client as part of a 6 month study exchange in Norway.
The Stowaway Hatchet is designed to be a fail safe tool that appeals to the extreme outdoors and survival enthusiast as much as it appeals to the weekend camper or boy scout.
With the interest the prototype gained through social media the opportunity was presented to manufacture a small run, This gave the opportunity to investigate both methods and materials.
For the short run the blanks for the Stowaway Hatchet where abrasive waterjet cut leaving a finished edge before having the cutting edge hand worked using traditional blacksmith techniques
Small runs of these axes are released periodically on the Stowaway Supply Co Store.
