The Dragon hatchet is tied with the Inferno adze for the second best hatchet available only surpassed by the crystal hatchet. It is a members-only tool. It is both a weapon (requiring 60 Attack to wield) and a Woodcutting tool (requiring 61 Woodcutting to use). It is a rare drop from the Dagannoth Rex, Dagannoth Prime, and Dagannoth Supreme, all of whom inhabit Waterbirth Island. They are also a possible reward from the Crystal triskelion, although it is quite rare to receive one.
When received with CoinShare active, the Dragon hatchet will be dropped as 120 Dragon hatchet shards split evenly among the players and sent directly to their banks. 120 shards can be combined to create this item.

A player wielding a Dragon hatchet
|[view] • [talk]|
The dragon hatchet has a special attack, Clobber, which requires 100% adrenaline and lowers your opponent's Defence and Magic by 10%.
- There is currently a glitch where when cutting an evil tree while the dragon hatchet is sheathed, your character will still have the hatchet sheathed on their back as well be wielding one to cut the tree.
- Upon its release the dragon hatchet only needed a Woodcutting level of 41 (same as a rune hatchet) and could only cut logs at the same rate as a rune hatchet. It was simply considered a more expensive, red-coloured rune hatchet with better combat stats (which Jagex actually confirmed in the knowledge base earlier). On 22 August 2006, its log cutting ability was increased to be about 5-10% faster than a rune hatchet, and its Woodcutting level was increased to 61.
- Before the Evolution of Combat, the dragon hatchet was the only hatchet that had a different look among other metal hatchets of its kind. The hatchet head was very different and the dragon hatchet had a metallic handle.
