Color: American Hickory
You know the old saying that goes “It’s better to have it and not need it, than need it and not have it.” When we’re out in the sticks and find ourselves swinging away with a hatchet, that’s exactly what goes through our heads. Hults Bruk is still based in their hometown of Norrkoping, Sweden, where they got their humble start forging nails and iron bars with water-powered hammers way back in 1697. To this day, the metal they use in their axes is forged in the same ironworks using many of the same time-tested techniques. The Agdor Splitting Axe is purpose-built for splitting firewood, with a splitting pattern on the blade to reduce friction and wedging action that cracks wood open with explosive power.
