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.

It looks nice, but not really enough heft for a good slpitting axe.

Coup de grace

Used in conjunction with a heavier maul in bigger wood- this beauty provided a relatively lightweight coup de grace that minimizes the effort required

Stephen Dye

Splits wood like butter! Great tool. Highly, highly recommend.

Can be swung all day

I recently used this axe for 2 days straight splitting firewood. I really like it because of the weight to power ratio. It is light enough that I could swing this axe all day. Although it is not as strong as a maul for tough wood, it can be used much longer. Very satisfied.

New Axe

I just tested it out the other day for the first time. The wood I was splitting was pretty soft and seasoned but it went through like butter. It’s also beautiful. I trust it will last a long time. I’m happy with my choice. Thank you!
