In this video, I’m attempting to create the world’s sharpest ‘stone’ hatchet, drawing inspiration from the film Prey.
As it turns out, working with actual stone isn’t my strength, so I switched to steel, aiming to give it a stone-like appearance.

For the material, I used a wedge, possibly intended for splitting stones itself, but on the inside it was a bit more delaminated than expected. However, it ended up working great. I then used hickory for the handle and added leather and ropes to complete the design.

In the end, I’m very happy with how it turned out. Using a rope to throw the hatchet makes it a lot of fun because you don’t have to walk to pick it up every time. Although it does make spinning the hatchet a bit harder, at least with this one I made.
It might be worth trying on other styles of axes and hatchets to see how it works because it’s really enjoyable.
