Perfect sized forest axe.

 on May 15, 2017

With this Hultafors I’ve found my perfect forest axe. Larger enough to out perform a hatchet yet small enough to pack. The “axe people” were right, these small axes perform quite well and save unnecessary wear & tear from my knife.

Really nice pack axe

Top quality axe at a good price. Fit and finish was very good and sharp enough to use as received. The edge profile was not perfect but very few axes are. I would highly recommend this axe.

Very sturdy. The handle is unvarnished

Razor sharp right out of the box. Very sturdy. The handle is unvarnished, but that’s not a big deal. The head is kind of rough, but that’s not a problem, either. After a couple hours of heavy use, the edge dulled only slightly; still sharp enough to slice paper.

Well constructed with good, strong

Sharp! Well constructed with good, strong, materials; this axe feels like an object my kids will inherit. A quality product at a decent price. I’m glad I selected Hultafors.

Awesome backpacking axe

Awesome backpacking axe. The two pound head is heavy enough to make daunting tasks easy. (If your willing to carry the weight) have taken it out many times performs like a champ. Sharp as it gets for an axe, and retains its edge very well. If your on the fence about it go ahead and do it. Hand forged head will last several generations.

Really love the handling

Well built. A piece of art. Really love the handling, size, etc. Larger than a hatchet, so you can really get things done, but small enough to easily be packed.

Amazing axe. Came in the exact condition I expected to. It arrived two days before the estimate delivery window even began. Very satisfied.

Very sturdy. Good Steel

Very sturdy. Good Steel. The handle is to thick for my hands in places, but a very fine all around mid size axe. This is my second choice just after the Gransfors Bruck Small Forest Axe.

Just a nice "manly" piece of kit!

Did not experience any issues other might have had, and I for a change like the leather sheath, because it is not a snap on it will be easy to fix and there will not be any issues if the leather stretches.
