The design is inspired by some of our favorite Hults Bruk axes from the past. In 1870, ironmaster Ekelund brought back American production techniques and axe designs like Turpentine and Yankee patterns with hickory handles. With time these have become symbols for Hults Bruk axes. The head of our Anniversary axe, with a gross weight of 1.25lb, is a classic Yankee pattern and the bit has a finishing with a narrow 5 step premium grind. It is hand forged from Swedish quality steel, another symbols of Hults Bruk axes. We have equipped it with a hickory handle and a specially made leather edge cover, manufactured in Sweden from a vegetable tanned, fullgrain leather. Enclosed together with the axe you will also find a key ring with a ships nail as a reminder of where our forging tradition began.
