4.5 pound, hand-forged Swedish steel axe head with 32" hickory wood handle.
Great for hardwood! The massive 5.5" edge profile can take down hardwoods. Head is secured with both a steel and wooden wedge. These don't come sharpened, but we will sharpen them to the appropriate angle for whatever work you seek to do. This is truly a beast of an axe; great for felling, splitting, or executing a standing chop.
Arvika used to be it's own separate forge, but sadly they halted production in the early 1960s. Hults Bruk bought the brand and this particular pattern soon after.
All Hults Bruks axe heads are hand-forged from Swedish axe steel and has been in business since 1697. They are hand-ground, and the steel is struck and tempered to hold great edges--even after having been sharpened in! Every axe is made with a hickory handle ( this particular axe DOES NOT COME WITH protective leather sheath)
