Black hatchet detail

The black hatchet is a hatchet that is slightly stronger than the steel hatchet. It can be used in combat or in Woodcutting to cut trees. It can be obtained from Level 1 Treasure Trails or obtained as a drop from various monsters. Like all black weapons, this requires an Attack level of 25 to wield.

It is the only free-to-play hatchet that cannot be made using the Smithing skill. This hatchet, unlike other hatchets, cannot be added to the tool-belt.

As with all black equipment, this item cannot be made from raw materials using the Smithing skill.
