Hults Bruk
Salen Hatchet
#840061The Hults Bruk Salen is a compact, all-purpose hatchet for basic uses such as making kindling, doing light clearing and working in the garden. This item has an axe head weight of 1.75 Lbs and a handle length of 20 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. That handle is treated with linseed oil.

The Hults bruks axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697. As part of the hand grinding production process, the 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 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. The axe is shipped in its own storage box and comes with a detailed users manual.Head Weight: 1.75 IbsTotal weight: 2.75 IbsTotal length: 20 inchIncludes Leather Sheath

Great tool!

Very impressed with this hatchet. Well made, good fit and finish are all what I first noticed. The edge came fairly sharp and the excellence of the Swedish Steel was apparent when I touched up the Blade with a stone. I also like the compact size and weight as its intended to be around hunting camp and in a pack in the field. Definitely would recommend it.

… get what you pay for and this is the best!

Solid hatchet/small axe!

This is a Swedish made axe. That’s all you need to know. It came with a decent edge but anyone buying an axe is going to sharpen it themselves anyway. Handle grain was spot on and I love the this thing! I think the 20″ is the perfect all-around tool length. Small enough to fit on the side of a pack, long enough to get a good swing. I’ve taken this backpacking and camping and it’s my new best friend.

Very well made. Shows a pride of craftsmanship that is rare these days. Sure to hold up the demanding needs of New Hampshire winters.

They’ve been making axes since 1697 so yeah.
