Step 1: Materials
1. A good, strong short stick
2. some cord (any cord works fine)
3. a strong sharp rock
1. another hard rock
2. a knife (optional, but very helpful.)
in this step, what you want to do is split the wood , not all the way, but to about the middle. you can do this any way you want. i used a sharp rock and pounded it down.
the next thing you will do is tie some cord around the end of the split. (see picture.)
use the rest of the cord to haft the head with a repeating x pattern. it has to be super tight. tie off the end in any way you want. look at my knot if you want to.
now you have a survival hatchet! you can chop small trees. the other end also works as a hammer. feel free to customize or add a grip!
