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.

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.

Amazing company

Very pleased with the service and products from Friendly, speedy, knowledgeable and always available to answer any questions. Was so happy with my first purchase I had to go back and buy more to support such a great company. That transaction was so easy and they helped with all my questions regarding the products. I'll be purchasing from this company again very soon. Oh and the axe, it's not about the price, it's about the quality. That's what you get with hultafors axes. Flawless.
