Husqvarna Multipurpose Wood Cutting Axe

If you want a fine Swedish axe at a fraction of the cost of Gransfors Bruks and are willing to put a little elbow grease into it, Husqvarna Multi Purpose Forest Axe is the deal of the century.

Husqvarna Multipurpose Axe
Husqvarna is a best axe buy

High Quality Wood Axe

The Husqvarna axe handle is hickory; all nicely aligned and grain direction on my axe was indeed perfect. Tightness of the grain was above average. However the linseed oil finish needs sanding down. A little scraping with a chisle near the axe head also helps. Finish up with a coat of bees wax/orange oil and you are left with a beautiful handle.

Hand Forged Swedish Made Axe

The Scandinavian Forest axe head is hand forged with the Husqvarna symbol deeply embossed. It shows traces of grinding marks and the edge is no where near the hair cutting sharpness of a Gransfors Bruks. However the Swedish steel is there and the profile is correct. You just need to be willing to devote about 2 hours on Arkansas Stone get it razor sharp.

Felling Axe

This is a very fine tool for the money. Husqvarna Multipurpose Axe comes with a nice blade, the steel has very good edge retention.  For me, bringing the edge up myself is part of the joy of owning it. This axe is indeed a joy to own and use. The axe quality is outstanding and with proper care should last for years and years to come.  I think this is the best deal in axes. If you are looking for a multipurpose axe that can fell a small trees, easily lim fallen trees but also split wood around camp for the money I think the Husqvarna multipurpose axe can’t be beat. I may buy another and rehang it on a smaller handle.

Best forged axes Sweden

The profile of the axe blade is thin, making it good for limbing, felling small trees and making kindling.  However its lack of wedge shape makes splitting of larger logs challenging, as the blade tends to stick into the wood. (ie, more of a slicer than a splitter)

The Husqvarna Forest Axe head is attached to the handle using both a wooden and a steel wedge to secure fastening. Suitable for small-scale tree felling, limbing logs, branch trimming and clearing bushes. The long handle gives power to the cut. Comes with an edge cover in leather.

This is a great, heavy hatchet for it’s price

By Shane M.
This is a great, heavy hatchet for it’s price. The steel is top-notch for the price. If you’re unfamiliar with carbon steel, do your research prior to buying any hatchet better than a Chinese import, as this axe may not be for you.

If you can only have one tool…

I purchased this axe for a 9 week long bushcrafting school in northern Maine. I found that it was able to handle any axe related chores around camp as well as for chopping medium and smaller trees. Where this axe truly excels is in crafting: I have made 4 good quality long bows using only this axe, and I find that impressive. If you keep a file with you this tool can be as sharp as any knife and just as easy to use. I highly recommend this product for anyone who knows what they’re looking for, as well as anyone looking to get their first quality axe. It is a permanent part of my pack.

It’s a very nice little hatchet

It’s a very nice little hatchet. Mine had a very straight wood grain and a beautiful handle before treatment with boiled linseed oil. I would recommend the treatment and a handle protected, I am wrapping mine in orange 550 cord, just to keep the handle pretty.
