Hultafors Handmade Swedish Axes

Hultafors axes are forged by hand. They have been crafted in the traditional way since 1697. At Hults Bruk in Östergötland, there are smiths who carry out work that not many others are able to do. Only a few producers in the world employ smiths who can produce this sort of craftsmanship.

Best material
Axe heads are forged from Swedish axe steel. A traditional tool steel of consistently high quality, all the best Swedish Axes use Iron ore from a single mountain. The steel is stuck many times until the axe attains its final form. Add to that a Hickory shaft for comfort and grip in the hand, resilience during use and durability outdoors. Used correctly and sharpened regularly, our axes can last for generations.
