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.

Excellent customer service helped me find a beautiful axe

Customer service was fantastic. When buying handmade tools online, it’s important to get a look at the items to determine fit and finish. Staff was more than willing to assist by taking pictures of the best items they had in stock. I will return for other axes.

What a nice axe! Light enough to carry in my pack and versatile. It just feels very nice to handle with either two hands or single handed like a hatchet.
Fast delivery too!
