Hand forged swedish axes.Hults Bruk have been making the world's finest axes since 1697. Every axe is expertly hand-forged and crafted, a time-honoured tradition preserved by Hults Bruk craftsmen. Today, Hults Bruk is owned and operated by Hultafors which is a big Swedish tool company originating in 1880. They are commonly known for inventing the wooden-ruler. Every axe comes with a New Zealand lifetime warranty on the forging work, with handles made from the highest quality American Hickory. We love a good axe at Hatchet and think everyone needs at least one.
