Hultafors 325 Years Anniversary Axe


Hultafors 325 Years Anniversary Axe

Hultafors wanted to celebrate their 325 years of forging tradition at Hults Bruk by making a limited edition line of tools.

The design is inspired by some of their favourite Hults Bruk axe models from the past. In the 1870 the ironmaster Ekelund ventured to America. He brought back not only new production techniques, but also hickory handles and axe designs such as Montreal and Yankee patterns. With time these became some of their most popular and enduring axe models. The head of the Anniversary axe, with a gross weight of 0.6 kg (21 ounces), is that of a classic Yankee pattern and the bit is finished with a premium grind. It is hand forged from Swedish quality steel, a hallmark of Hults Bruk axes.

Handle and leather sheath

They have fitted it with a traditional hickory handle that is treated with linseed oil. The sustainably sourced leather sheath is manufactured in Sweden from a vegetable tanned, full–grain leather. Included with the axe you will also find a key ring with a decorative and commemorative ship’s nail as a reminder of how their forging tradition began.
