Good choice...That is a beauty, I have seen and handled many of these hatchets by Reeves...
I am a big practioner of "traditional " camping and gear, clothes etc.....
I have all the Kephart books, George Sears, and many dozens of other writers from that era, the "Gloden Age of Camping"..
The so called "trintiy" that Sears liked is still a good practice to follow. Hatchet, fixed blade and a folder
The only problem being that most folks are not aware of the skill it takes to handle a single or a double edged hatchet..
Also in some places the double is very useful and other places it is not...
I do not use the double edge hatchet myself.
I do prefer , most of the time my hatchet over a large "chopper" type of knife.
Again depending on where you are going.
If you go to our website you will see many articles that I have written for "Wilderness Way" magazine over the years , on traditional style gear and camping.
