This is a solid splitting axe, intended for heavier duties such as splitting logs and wood. The shape of the head, in combination with it’s slightly convex grinding, allows the axe to split large rounds of wood with less effort. The Hult Splitting axe has a long and straight handle made from American hickory, enabling the user to gain maximum control and force when splitting logs. The name of this axe has its origin in Hult, the area where Hults Bruk was founded. Like most old Swedish geographical names, it describes the surrounding landscape of the place.
