About Hultafors:

Pure craftsmanship from Hults Bruk since 1697! These axes are crafted by hand at one of the oldest axe making companies still around. It takes many blows with a hammer to produce the axe’s final shape. This method is costly, but it increases the density of the steel, thereby also improving the axe’s durability compared to those produced with fewer blows.

There are very few manufacturers left in the world with craftsmen who still command this technique.

Axe Description:

A small, practical Outdoors Axe, hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel using traditional methods in use since 1697.

Hand Forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making an axe stronger than if they were drop forged.

The Axe Head is struck numerous times, increasing its density and thereby the durability of the axe.

Excellent for use in the great outdoors, can tackle most jobs.

The Axe’s Edge has been ground by hand and goes through several stages of honing and stroping to obtain a shaving sharp edge. The hatchet has a clear hard zone within which the axe can be sharpened whilst not detracting from the strength of the edge.

Each Axe Head has been carefully heat treated to obtain an optimal Rockwell Hardness of 58-59 HRC.

The handles are lathed from selected, oiled prime American Hickory Hardwood. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows make hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles.

Each Hultafors Classic Trekking Axe is supplied with a protective Sheath with Belt Loop made from tanned Leather.

Presented in Cardboard Gift Box.
