Axes forged with tradition

Axes forged with tradition

Are you looking for a small hatchet, a large splitting axe, a carpenter axe, a hunting axe or a throwing axe? Hultafors axes are hand forged from Swedish steel and manufactured at Hults Bruk in the Swedish province of Östergötland, where the forging tradition goes as far back as 1697.

Axe heads are forged from Swedish axe steel of a consistently high quality. The steel is struck many times until the axe attains its final form. It’s a costly method, but this increases the density of the steel and thereby the durability and life of the axe, particularly if you compare it to axes that are forged with only a few strikes.

The hardening method leaves a clear hard zone within which the axe can be sharpened while not detracting from the strength of the edge. Used correctly, Hultafors axes can last for generations.
