Handforged Swedish axes
£100.00 - £120.00
Hand forged, shaped, ground, and assembled axes from Hults Bruk in Sweden, mounted on seasoned, oiled hickory heartwood handles.

The forest axe is a mid weight forest axe, ideal for thinning saplings, limbing trees, as an impromptu splitter, or gripped about the head for stripping bark and shaping branches; the trekking axe is a general purpose cutting and splitting hatchet, designed to more than meet any task required whist wandering the Scandinavian wilderness; whilst the mini hatchet is a smaller lighter axe for easier carrying in a pack, useful for cutting, shaping, and splitting it is the perfect light camping axe. Each is supplied with a vegetable tanned leather sheath. The forest axe has a handle of about 50cm, and an 0.85kg head, the trekking axe measures about 38cm, with 0.5kg to the head, and the mini hatchet around 25cm and 0.5kg.
