Wetterlings Hudson’s Bay AxeWetterlings
Finally, an axe to throw in your canoe before a voyage into the forest. Wetterlings gives a nod to Canada’s fur-trading past with this modern rendition of the famed Hudson’s Bay Axe. Made to be all-purpose, the thin wedge shaped head can split and chop with equal power while being small enough to be mobile.
I tend to trust the Swedes when it comes to axes and other sharp things. Wetterlings is one of the oldest axe forge still operating in Sweden, producing top quality tools. The head of this axe is made of their own specially smelted carbon steel, hardened to 57 Rockwell C to ensure edge retention without losing durability. Comes with a vegetable- tanned leather head-cover. The American hickory haft is strong, but has enough flex to make sure it doesn’t break the first time you over swing. As with all wooden-hafted axes, take care to oil the haft of this axe regularly to ensure strength and a tight bond between head and haft.
