The Åby forest axe is a beautiful hybrid with many types of use. Åby 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. 0.7kg head, 24''/61cm hickory handle, sheath.
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.
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.
Take care of your axe and it will stay a faithful companion for many years to come. Thanks to the quality and craftsmanship of this axe, Hultafors offer you a full lifetime warranty on the axe head.
