Hultafors - Åby Forest Axe
Named after the nearest village from Hults Bruk, where many of the workers at the forge lived in the mid 20th century, the Åby forest axe is a beautiful hybrid with many types of use. Åby has a straighter edge and grinding, and a good finger notch below the head for increased precision. The long, thin ergonomic handle minimises the weight of the axe but at the same time gives you great force when striking. This axe is perfect for shelter building and processing firewood, as well as precision work such as carving. In short, it is your perfect forest companion and is ideal for Bushcrafters looking for a highly versatile, lightweight and packable axe.
Like all Hultafors axes, the Åby Forest 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.
Hultafors Group is proud to offer a full lifetime warranty when you buy any of the Hultafors Premium Axes. The products eligible for the lifetime warranty are covered for the lifetime of the product, i.e. 50 years from the date of purchase.
