Hultafors has a strong and proud tradition of making axes that goes all the way back to 1697. (about 300 years before the other guys!!). At Hults Bruk in the County of Ostergotland their Blacksmiths are among the few in the World who still master the craft.
The Classic axes are forged by hand for high quality axe steel and through repeated pounding the steel is shaped into the axe head. Each strike increases the density of the steel which gives a strong, durable axe that will serve you a lifetime. The next step is the hardening process which creates a distinct hardening zone in which the axe can be re-sharpened many times with the same strength and sharpness.
The Bushcraft Axe (otherwise known as The Hunting Axe) is a lightweight Axe with a longer handle which is made to fit for both one and two hand use. The two-hand use makes it possible to chop with a greater force making a more universal product than its smaller brothers. With the Hunting Axe you can chop down fairly large trees – and Hultafors advise that you be kneeling while chopping as you get better safety and a better ergonomic position.
The Bushcraft/Hunting Axe is also good for limbing, if you need to sharpen a stick or chop some wood. It is ideal for Bushcraft and living the traditional life in the woods, where forest, wood, axe and fire are intertwined.
The Bushcraft/Hunting Axe fits in a large back pack, but can also be carried in your belt. The Axe is fitted with a high quality hickory handle and comes with a leather sheath.
