The Hults Bruk Bjork is a larger splitting axe intended for heavier duties such as splitting large logs as well as processing wood for use in a fireplace. This item has an axe head weight of 3.5 Lbs and a handle length of 30 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. That handle is treated with linseed oil.

 

 

This 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 axe comes with a detailed users manual.
