The first one on the left side of the photograph has beadwork on the handle and a few brass tacks. The head of the hatchet is in the shape of a diamond; in the middle of the diamond is cut out the shape of a heart. There are two pieces that curved back next to the handle before the shape of the Diamond Head. On the end of the handle is an identification tag. The second has a plain wooden handle that has been sharpened down.
