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 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. 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.

I don’t give 5 stars often. Husqvarna axes deserve 5 stars!!! Don’t buy another hatchet!

If you look at my review history you’ll see that I very rarely give a product 5 stars. My qualifications for a five star product is that it must not only be one of the best products available in that market space but also at a very reasonable price and Husqvarna hits a homerun on both!

This will not replace my 8 pound splitting maul. It does nicely round out my “firewood splitting tool box”. Once I have halved the bigger 18 inch plus rounds, or have smaller rounds, I grab this guy. I can swing this splitting ax a lot longer and it feels better in my hands.

Bushcraft to woodsman!

I use it for camping and bushcrafting. It’s usefulness for everything from felling trees to making stakes plus it’s pumle is amazing. Weight of the head is over two pounds, and the grain is tight. I recommend this axe for any new bushcrafter or outdoorsman. P.S. the rivets are not brass and could dull the blade a few years later if in cared for.

A good working tool!
