Hultafors - Ekelund Hunting Axe
Named after Gunnar Ekelund, the squire who initiated axe production at a larger scale in Hults Bruk in 1870 - 1875. The Ekelund Hunting Axe is suited to lighter forestry work as well as for skinning game.
We believe the Ekelund perfectly fills the middle ground between the Hultån Hatchet and the Åby Forest Axe. Noticeably weightier than both the Hultån and the Åby, with a 0.85kg head, the Ekelund packs a punch. Sitting in the middle of the Hultån and the Åby in terms of handle length, whilst not as packable as the Hultån and perhaps not as suited to small felling and carving as the Åby, the Ekelund certainly holds its own.
This could well be the perfect choice for those extended trips where processing firewood becomes a regular demand.
Like all Hultafors axes, the Ekelund Hunting 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.
