|"It's not the greatest axe, but it will get the job done."|
The Basic Hatchet is the cheapest and slowest axe in the game. It is considered the "starter" axe for every player, because it is recommended in the beginning tutorial and is only $12 Money.
Its handle has a dull brown color, and a yellow strap near its base. Also, its head has a dull, grey color. Its box is plastic yellow, the same with the Snowglow Wood's plank and the boxed Wobblebobble.
To obtain the Basic Hatchet, you must go to the Wood R Us store near the spawning area, and ensure that you have 12 Money. Then, proceed to the nearest right wooden shelf, where you can find a yellow box and the picture of the Basic Hatchet. Grab (Press "E" and hold) it, then drag it on the counter, next to the entrance. Then, talk to Thom, by pressing "E" when the "Talk to Thom" box has appeared.
Once the text box has disappeared, open the box by pressing "E" on it (note that you should stay near the box to open it), and press "E" again to place it on your hand.
