Discover The Sharp Range Of Camping Axes & Hatchets At Anaconda

When you need to chop some wood to fuel the campfire or shave down some wood for kindling, our incredible range of camping axes and camping hatchets at Anaconda will tick all of your boxes. An axe or hatchet is essential for camping as it can help you in various tasks such as chopping firewood, clearing a campsite or even building a shelter in the wilderness if you don't have a tent. It's a versatile tool that can be useful for splitting logs, cutting branches and preparing firewood, all of which are crucial for maintaining a campsite and ensuring a safe and comfortable outdoor experience.

Featuring many well-known brands such as Fiskars and Gerber, our excellent range of axes and hatchets is made from high-quality materials such as forged carbon steel. High-quality steel, such as carbon steel or stainless steel, is often preferred for its durability and resistance to corrosion. Axes with handles made from rubber, like our Gerber axes, are also commonly favoured for their great grip, durability and ability to withstand the rigours of outdoor use.

Camping Axes & Hatchets FAQs

What is the best size for a camping axe?

The best size of camping axe will depend on what specific tasks you will be needing to carry out on your camping trip. If you will be mainly chopping wood for firewood, which would be the most common need, then an axe with a longer handle will be a better choice.

What is the difference between a camping axe and a camping hatchet?

Even though there are many different uses, the main difference between a camping axe and a camping hatchet is that an axe is designed for larger tasks like chopping and splitting wood, whereas a hatchet is designed for smaller tasks like shaving wood for kindling.

Can a hatchet cut firewood?

Yes, a hatchet axe can cut firewood. In the right hands, a hatchet is like a small axe. However, cutting firewood with an axe is easy because you are relying on the weight of the head to do most of the work. With the right technique and accuracy, you can wield a hatchet to cut firewood in a pinch.

Should a camping axe be sharp or blunt?

Unlike a knife, an axe doesn't need to be razor-sharp all of the time. However, you definitely don't want a blunt axe for numerous safety reasons. Unless you will mainly be doing carving work, your axe just needs to have a basic edge to do the job of chopping - but never blunt!
