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.
This is Hultafors' smallest hatchet, suitable for hiking in the mountains or in the woods. The hatchet is flexible and easy to use, and it fits perfectly for diverse tasks near the camp site, such as processing fire wood and shelter building. With its short handle and light weight, it is easy to pack in your back pack or attach to your belt.This hatchet has become a favourite among those who enjoy spending time around the camp fire.The hatchet is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel in the forge at Hults Bruk.
The forging tradition goes as far back as 1697, and the steel head is struck 40-60 times to increase density and durability to the head. The axe is named after the nearby lake Ågelsjön, where the water needed to run the waterwheel for the forge was once taken. Take care of your hatchet and it will stay a faithful companion for many years to come. Thanks to the quality and craftsmanship of this axe, we offer you a full lifetime warranty on the axe head.

The Wetterlings Buddy is the latest addition to my Wetterlings collection it is a ideal hatchet for small tasks, splitting wood for kindling to carving projects, fits nicely in the hand and well balanced. it maintains a good edge only needing a strop after use to keep it razor sharp.
