This axe and cover with belt loop are great. The belt loop works great with an old leather belt I had laying around. This axe is the perfect size for my needs learning bushcraft camping. The quality is great on this axe head, Oak handle and Leather sheath. I am very pleased with this purchase. Now I just have to learn how to use and care for my new axe.

This axe is the nicest one I have ever owned, you can tell it is hand made. It is light in the hand and came hair shaving sharp. I have used it to spilt kindling and create feather sticks to start a fire, works great for duing fine work. Also comes with a fine leather sheath with a simple leather holding strap. It is 15″ overall so small enough to to fit in a pack but large enough to do most camp work. I only wish there was an American dealer selling the Hultafors Hunting Axe and I would buy it as well. You definitely won’t regret purchasing this hatchet.

the edge could be ground better. I prefer a convex grind

Fit and finish isnt quite what i would expect for the price paid, the edge could be ground better. I prefer a convex grind, this is almost like a skandi grind. With that being said so far it has performed very well for me.

This axe quality is superior than my GB small forest axe at 2/3 the cost. Highly recommend for preparing firewood and field dressing game while hunting.

Shave sharp from the factory!

This came brand new popping hairs off my arm! Nice polished edge and build quality is great. It’ll be a long long time before needing to rehang it. Its light, very sturdy, and IMO the perfect size for backpacking or camping. Main use would be felling small trees, wood/fire crafting, and great for setting traps. Handle comes varnished so I’ll be stripping that and applying a healthy dose of boiled linseed oil regularly. The only thing i saw as a “problem” was on my sheath. The belt loop seems very small and its a really tight fit to get it on and off a belt without hassle but that won’t bother me since it’ll be attached to my backpack. I recommend this axe!

You just have to appreciate things that are made by people, for people. Superb quality and craftsmanship went into making this and it has to be held and used to understand it. There are others out there for a lot more and a lot less, but overall this Hultafors Trekking Axe cannot be beat.

Really don’t have enough good things to say about this axe. Extremely well made and comfortable to hold for both cutting down a small tree or small tight work like splitting small pieces of wood or beginning a carving project. Holding it at the neck feels very natural and gives a lot of control

Very functional and sharp outa the box.

Very good hatchet for the money. Not as nice as my Wetterlings but just as good in my opinion. I have to admit though it came with the nicest edge of all the axes I own by a long shot. The handle is not in line grain wise with the bit and is not treated at all. The 15″ handle gives the 1lb bit great choping ability. The bit geometry makes it bite nice and deep into the wood when chopping. All in all I’m pleased with it and will give the Hunting axe a shot as well.

Great quality and ready to cut

Impressed right out of the box. The head has great workmanship including a brilliantly finished edge. Great Swedish workmanship, and the edge is cost to razor sharp. Handle is straight grained hickory and very solid! Very pleased!

Great on detailed tasks

Probable the single nicest tool I’ve ever owned. It is a work of art. I use it for carving mostly. Great on detailed tasks, but still solid enough to to perform beefier camp tasks. With it, a folding saw, and a mora one would be just fine out in the bush for a while.
