This axe celebrates 325 years of forging tradition at Hults Bruk. The design is inspired by some of our favourite Hults Bruk axe models from the past. The head, with a gross weight of 0.6 kg (21 ounces), is of a classic Yankee pattern. Yankee and Montreal patterns as well as hickory handles were brought back from America by our ironmaster Ekelund in the 1870s along with new production techniques. With time these became some of our most popular and enduring axe models. The head is hand forged from Swedish quality steel, a hallmark of Hults Bruk axes and the bit is finished with a premium grind. The green colour is inspired by a range of Swedish Agdor axes from the middle of the 20th century and the red handle was a common feature on many Agdor models during the latter half of the 20th century. The label and the shape of the handle are inspired by some of the oldest documented axes from Hults Bruk, found in a catalogue from the 1890s. We have fitted the anniversary axe with a hickory handle and a sustainably sourced leather sheath which was manufactured in Sweden from a vegetable tanned, full–grain leather. Included with the axe you will also find a key ring with a decorative and commemorative ship nail as a reminder of how our forging tradition began in 1697.
