FEATURES of the Hults Bruk Aneby Hatchet:
As part of the hand grinding production process, the Hults Bruk Aneby Hatchet steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe. The head is constructed in such a way that there is a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings. The curved hickory handle is treated with linseed oil. Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements.

I like the hatchet, but…….. The grain orientation of the handle is not what it should be. It is way too diagonal. The head itself is very nice. No need to sharpen this baby before use. I can’t wait to get into the bush to try it out. But I will carry an extra handle in my truck. I guess in the future I will buy this type product in person not over the internet.
First high end axe and very pleased with the quality

First high end axe and very pleased with the quality. I don’t own a Gransfor or a Wetterlings axe but I heard great reviews with all 3 companies. I decided to go with Hultafors because of the price and reviews I been finding. I decided to go with the oldest axe producer giving me some confidence who they are and comfort knowing they are around for a reason. Overall great axe!.
Excellent and sharp!

This Hatchet is a great quality one so far, packaging was good, head sheath is excellent, & the edge this hatchet has is amazing, what I was hoping for. You can even shave with it… I shaved a little patch of my arm just to see if it can do so with extreme ease, and it certainly did.
Blade like a knife and nice balance.

Nice balance and incredibly sharp. I purchased this as a gift, so I didn’t get to try it, but the quality was apparent. Comes with a nice leather sheath that ties around the head.
Sharp as can be
Very sharp hatchet! Cuts wood like butter, but needs to be sharpened for same effect. Stays somewhat sharp even without sharpening. Great quality, you get what you pay for here. Not for big trees
Would buy again (will probably never have to)
Holds an edge well and comes nearly sharp enough to shave with. Nice handle, it needed a final smoothing with some 200 grit paper…. and to remove the warning paragraph that I’m sure they’re obligated to print on when selling a product in modern day America, but I consider it money well spent.
this is a quality tool and you really can shave with it as it comes out of the package.
A great tool.
Looks great, and totally functional. No moving parts, nothing to go wrong. A great quality tool.
Great medium sized axe to get work done
This axe came razor sharp! Be careful! The sheath is a great addition that came with the purchase. Very satisfied.
