'Barbarism is the natural state of mankind,' the borderer said, still staring somberly at the Cimmerian. 'Civilization is unnatural. It is a whim of circumstance. And barbarism must always ultimately triumph.'

From grain to herbs many cultures utilize these or similar to enhance their production of wild and domestic plants. Across the globe these can be found crafted in everything from steel to bone.


Much like the sickle this small hand tool is common place in the Hyborian Age. It's larger cousin, the axe, is used to fell huge trees and enemies, but the hatchet is often picked up when small trees need to be cut down to make camp, or wood needs to be broken down into firewood to keep it's owner warm on those cold nights.
