The broken hatchet was removed along with ents in the Random Event Update of 25 February 2009. Several weeks before this, the price of this item skyrocketed on the Grand Exchange, due to the fact that many players thought this would be a discontinued (and therefore rare) item. However, the update automatically repaired all broken hatchets, so any players who paid money for this broken hatchet would find that it was replaced by the normal counterpart. This is now a discontinued item, and all in existence have since been automatically repaired.
