Waxed canvas should never be dry cleaned or machine washed. It can be cleaned carefully by hand. Brush off the loose dirt, rinse the surface with cold water, gently scrub with a brush, then let air dry. If stains persist, use mild bar soap or saddle soap.
After cleaning, waxed canvas may need to be re-waxed. To do so, use a wax conditioner and apply following the manufacturer's instructions.
Q: Can the Field Hatchet be re-handled?
A: Yes. If it is necessary to re-handle the Field Hatchet, simply insert the new handle through the head of the hatchet. The head should start to snug towards the thicker portion of the handle toward the top. To set the head, turn the hatchet on its head. While holding onto the handle, drop the hatchet from about 10" onto a solid surface. After five or six drops the head will set firmly. As the hatchet is used the head will further set itself.
