Åby Forest Axe, 700g Premium


This forest axe is a beautiful hybrid with many types of use. Aby has a straighter edge and grinding, and a good finger notch below the head for increased precision. The long, thin ergonomic handle minimizes the weight, at the same time giving you great force when striking. This axe is perfect for shelter building, processing firewood, and carving, as well as precision work. In short, it is your perfect forest companion. 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. This axe is named after Åby, the nearest village to Hults Bruk, where many of the workers lived in the middle of the 20th century. Take care of your axe and it will stay a faithful companion for many years to come.

The Axe I didn’t know I needed

I actually purchased this accidentally - I had a couple of axes in the cart and deleted the wrong one. I’m actually very happy I ended up with the Aby. I’ve never owned an axe of this size and wasn’t sure what it would be useful for when I first received it. I managed to get a good days work done building a shelter with the kids this weekend. While it doesn’t split some of the bigger logs, it can do pretty much anything else. The light weight means I can swing it all day without feeling ant fatigue

I'm running sled dogs and spending a lot of time , clearing trails in the bush , summer and winter . That axe is just perfect to carry on the sled and do everything! Arrived super sharp 👌

Axeman’s service was as keen as the axe they sold me!

I had researched the axe thoroughly, so I was confident the product wouldn’t disappoint... It hasn’t.

The experience of buying from Axeman was the unknown.

As the title suggests, their service was a cut above the rest. I haven’t had a web purchase that painless in a long while.
