The Hults Bruk Tarnaby is a small, all-purpose hatchet for basic uses such as making kindling, doing light clearing and working in the garden.

Hults Bruk Tarnaby has an axe head weight of 1.25 Lbs and a handle length of 15 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. The handle is treated with linseed oil.

  • Hults Bruk 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 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.
  • Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements. The Hults Bruk axe is shipped in its own storage box and comes with a detailed users manual.

Excellent all purpose small axe

 on July 26, 2016

Amazing quality for the price. This is a serious tool. Quality and construction of the head is superior. Very sharp and easy to sharpen. Small splitting jobs or any other chopping chore short of felling a large tree…this great little axe will do it all. Well balanced with an well shaped and functional design. So good I bought a Hults large splitting axe. You will not be disappointed in this professional quality manual tool.

Excellent. Classy and tough. Great price for a great axe. This’ll last forever. I bought two as gifts, and my pals love the axe.

Great for the size. Came incredibly sharp on arrival and have had phenomenal results so far. I may eventually upgrade to something a bit bigger, but the quality and application for this hatchet are not to be questioned. Very happy with my purchase.

Used on fire wood at ~12,000ft, cut cleanly. Came extremely sharp. I also used it to break the pelvis of a mule deer in the field and cut the ribs out with it. Phenomenal axe. Sharpened up quickly after use. Blood washed off the handle in a stream, dried it out at room temp, no cracking in the handle. Needs some linseed oil to be perfect, maybe a collar.

Very happy

Very Solid! I bought like 5 or 6 for my wedding present gift, and they were a huge hit among brothers
