Hultafors Classic Carpenters Axe (840730)
Pure craftsmanship from Hults Bruk since 1697! These axes are crafted by hand at one of the oldest axe making companies still around. It takes many blows with a hammer to produce the axe’s final shape. This method is costly, but it increases the density of the steel, thereby also improving the axe’s durability compared to those produced with fewer blows. There are very few manufacturers left in the world with craftsmen who still command this technique.

Each head has been carefully heat treated to obtain an optimal hardness of 58-59 HRC.
