It is the cruiser. I have a matching set of all 3 axes they’ve made so far, number 76. I ordered every one of them the day they were first offered but specifically requested this number.

Harbor Freight hatchet​

Great choice to mod. American hickory handle that is very nicely hung with metal barrel wedges, good quality steel head that sharpens and holds a good edge. I lightly sanded to remove the clear lacquer that was applied and did five coats of BLO. I removed the factory black coating from the butt and head area around the eye. I drilled a hole in the handle for a leather thong, and re-profiled and sharpen the bit. I like the way it turned out. Hard to beat at this price point. Stained the sheath I purchased for $13 with BLO. $26 total for tool and sheath....not bad at all.
