    Looks about the size sold for splitting deer pelvis bones. Might do an image search for "hunting hatchet."

    I can't remember the manufacturer but those originally came as a two piece set with a hunting knife way back when. I've been looking for one for ages as my great grandfather had one when I was a kid and I loved it. It won't do "heavy" work but it does do well for light work, and chopping up fish bait, processing catfish, etc... Heck of a find these days, particularly for a price that can't be beat.

    Yes I can be long winded. Yes I follow rabbit trails. Yes I admit when I am wrong. Your mileage may vary.

    Keep your powder dry. Watch yer Top knot.

    I seem to remember when Marbles sold those with a knife as goodolboy says. Also, Western Cutlery of Denver sold a set, but they had the leather washer handles.

    Haven't seen one of those in a while; I do believe it's made by Marbles here in Gladstone MI, if so others are correct it was a 2 piece set with a sheath that held both, if it doesn't say marbles any where it may have been made by them for someone else

    Utica? Camillus??

    I would vote for Western, because it appears to have been made from a stamping, like an old Western fishing blade I have.

    Buck also makes a hunting hatchet shaped like that. My hunting partner carries one. Black bakelight/plastic grips. His appears to be polished stainless steel.

    That's a West-Cut knife and hatchet set. Look here at #150 about 1/2 way down the page.

    Nope, West-Cut, the shape is exact, the handle two rivets, and the hachet has that V-notch for pulling nails.

    Wow! I used to have one of those, or at least one very similar. Mine was a Western and I still have the knife, minus the scales. Man that brings back memories.
