Hultafors Ekelund Small Forest Axe
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. Their new premium range is another cut above and ooze quality. These are the type of product you will love and cherish for a lifetime.
With its ground neck and medium-weight head, our classic hunting is ideal for easier forestry work as well as for skinning game with great precision. This makes it your perfect hunting partner. It is also an ideal gift for any hunting enthusiast. The axe 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 name of this axe comes from Gunnar Ekelund, the squire who initiated axe production at a larger scale in Hults Bruk in 1870 - 1875. Take care of your axe 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.
