Our 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.
Axe heads are forged from Swedish axe steel of a consistently high quality. The steel is struck many times until the axe attains its final form. It's a costly method, but this increases the density of the steel and thereby the durability and life of the axe, particularly if you compare it to axes that are forged with only a few strikes.
Our hardening method leaves a clear hard zone within which the axe can be sharpened whilst not detracting from the strength of the edge. Used correctly, our axes can last for generations.
We produce axes that are designed for a number of different applications, including felling and splitting. We also produce axes that can be used outside the workplace – hunting, camping and sports.
Regardless of the situation, all axes must be treated with the utmost care.
