The Hatchet is the Tinkers Construct equivalent of the vanilla Minecraft axe. It chops wood, leaves, and with treecapitator installed, whole trees. The Hatchet is your everyday house-building, pig-chopping, creeper-killing multi-tool. Use it to chop timber for your little log cabin and to get lunch. Auto-smelt allows cooked piggies and free tree to charcoal conversions.
Class: Precision Tool
Effective on: Wood, Leaves, and Trees.
Even though the hatchet is effective on leaves, it won't harvest them as blocks.
Crafting a hatchet
Just like any other tinkers' tool, it is possible to create this tool out of any of the materials available. For a broader view on the stats look here: Material Stats. It is about 75% cheaper than a Vanilla axe and is repairable. To make a complete wood hatchet, you need 1.5 wood. You can also make sticks with any other 0.5 material cost part. It does about 1 point of damage less than a sword of that material (needs research).
