The trapezoidal shape of the HN-HH190 blade with an extension gives the ax the right weight balance with the center of gravity in the front. The rounding of the butt makes the design of the blade recognizable, original, and perfectly includes a hole for easy hanging on a hook. The transition of the bolster at the junction of the blade with the handle is made with a radial rounding and keeps the hand from rubbing with a tight grip. They are well fitted to the shank and fastened with three rivets. The extension and large heel of the handle create a good stop with a tight hold on the bolster. Because of the wooden handle, it is strictly forbidden to wash the hatchet in the dishwasher, as well as soak it in water. However, the material and shape of the handle suits the nature of the hatchet work and prevents slipping in the hand during swing and strike, which is more important than comfort when cleaning. Washing is done by hand in warm water, using a mild detergent. After cleaning, the hatchet should be rinsed, wiped dry, and hung in a ventilated place.
