Hult Splitting Axe, 1.5 kg Premium


This is a solid splitting axe, intended for heavier duties such as splitting logs and wood. The shape of the head, in combination with slightly convex grinding, splits the wood. The axe has a long and straight handle made from American hickory, to gain maximal speed and control when splitting logs. 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 has its origin in Hult, the area where Hults Bruk was founded. Like most old Swedish geographical names, it describes the surrounding landscape of the place. Take care of your axe and it will stay a faithful companion for many years to come.

Splits wood.

Does a perfectly fine job as splitting wood about as wide at 18". Naturally, this isn't a splitting maul so don't expect to be splitting giant North American trees 3' across without tons of effort. This seems to, obviously, be a design focused around the smaller trees found in Nordic countries, not the huge trees we have in Canada. That said, it's also something that's portable. I would never take a splitting maul much further than the wood chopping area, but I'd have no problem bringing this camping with me, and even on a backpack if I was going wold camping for a longer length of time.
