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.

Surprising splitting power

This axe splits with surprising ease given it’s weight. I’m very impressed with the overall fit and finish. Nice enough to hang on the wall, but this axe will get lots of use. Axeman continues to impress me with their customer service and quick shipping.

Solid axe. Obvious signs of craftmanship. Smaller axe head than expected. Sheath amplifies the aesthetic. A more obvious association with the fact that is a Canadian company would be appreciated - when we opened the package, there is nothing indicating it has an association with a Canadian company or what association the Canadian company has with the axe which was made in Sweden. We almost expected the axe handle to be made from BC lumber. Otherwise, a quality product that we are looking forward to using. Thank you.

Incredible grip and action, a beautiful axe, piece of art in my humble opinion.
