For the first time in the brand’s 300-year history, Sweden’s Hults Bruk is importing two new lines of its hand-forged axes to the U.S. market. The Premium series features six new axes meticulously hand-finished to illuminate the beauty of the natural materials while increasing durability.
Hults Bruk’s Standard series offers seven new axes made with the same high-quality, hand-forged Swedish steel and American hickory handles at competitive prices. Shown is the Torneo compact felling axe that will see plenty of work hacking down small- to medium-sized trees around our upstate New York homestead this fall. The axe has a 1.75-pound head of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork. It measures 26 inches with its curved, U.S.-sourced hickory handle.
