The High Impact is Leo’s take on a full-sized hatchet/small ax. It’s huge. At just over 20 inches overall length, full-tang, and 3/8” thick, this thing has some weight behind it. It’s made of 1075 high carbon steel, so it’ll handle impacts well and keep a good edge. The tan canvas Micarta handles are thick but have comfortable, rounded edges with some extra contouring to improve the grip without making it harsh. The classy double-stitched blade cover is a nod to the traditional options on the market but maintains TOPS’ style.

Bottom line? This may just be the largest full-tang hatchet on the market. It’s roughly 3.5 pounds of chopping and splitting power The High Impact is large enough to swing with two hands, but still light and small enough to get some work done with just one. Bigger than most hatchets, but smaller than the typical full-sized ax, it’s a great blend for those looking for a tool that size.

Good Yard Tool
Thinning the yard with the chainsaw? Why not slow down a bit, and do a little mellow skirting by swinging the High impact on the side of the trunk you're not standing on, away from your shin?

It has a good swing weight, and if used correctly should be pretty painless.

I like it.

At 135lbs, I can't really manipulate it as well as the Ucon Hawk.
