Åby forest axe is a beautiful hybrid with many types of use, such as felling, carving and splitting. This axe is perfect for shelter building, processing firewood and carving, as well as precision work. In short, it is your perfect forest companion.
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. The axe is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel. As part of the head-forging process, the steel axe head is struck 40-60 times, thereby increasing its density and resulting in great durability. The Åby is named after the nearest village from Hults Bruk, where many of the workers at the forge lived in the mid 20th century.

The Hults Bruk story begins in 1697, hand-forging steel and iron with water-driven hammers. Over the last three centuries, Hults Bruk has perfected the art of designing and manufacturing premium Swedish axes. Today, the factory is a compelling combination of the new and the old, where the underlying culture of exquisite Swedish ironworking endures. Hults Bruk axes are made for a lifetime of use - camping, backpacking, bushcrafting, hunting or performing forestry work. Find the perfect axe, care for it, and you will be passing it on to your son or daughter, and to their sons and daughters
