Hewing Hatchet

Description

A hewing hatchet is a small tool used to shape wood. One side of the blade is flat, and the other side has a bevel (whereas a double-bitted hatchet or axe has bevels on both sides and cuts evenly). One would use this tool to cut and shape smaller pieces of wood (rather than, say, a log).
