With its ground neck and medium-weight head, Ekelund Hunting Axe is ideal for easier forestry work as well as for skinning game with great precision. This makes it your perfect hunting partner. It is also an ideal gift for any hunting enthusiast.
Like all the Hultafors axes, the Ekelund is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel from Hults Bruk (est. 1697). 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 name of the classic hunting axe comes from Gunnar Ekeland, the squire who, inspired after a trip to the USA initiated axe production at a larger scale in 1870-1875.
A personal favourite at Hatchet as it is light enough to carry in your pack but still large enough to get a good swing in.
Lifetime warranty on the forgery.
