Hultafors Classic Carpenters Axe
These axes have been hand crafted since 1697. 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. There are very few manufacturers in the world with craftsmen who still command this technique.
The hardening method leaves a clear hardened zone where the axe can be resharpened without detracting from the strength of the edge. The axes are hardened to 58-59 HRC. Used correctly these axes can last for generations.
Hultafors axes are made from Swedish axe steel of consistently high quality and the handles are made from oiled prime hickory heartwood.
Each axe comes with a sturdy leather sheath.
The axe as a notch in the head near the shaft, allowing you to hold a hand directly above the edge while cutting.
Has a clear tempered zone within which the axe can be sharpened whilst not detracting from the strength of the edge.
