A versatile, all-purpose hatchet made from solid Swedish steel and American hickory

You know the old saw 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 Almike features a blade that’s hand-forged from Swedish steel on a lightweight and easy to use American hickory handle—the perfect thing to put in the camping supply kit and be thankful for the fact that you have it next time you need it.

  • Axe head hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697
  • Tempered zone in the blade that you can hone to a sharp edge time and time again
  • Curved handle with finger notch for easy handling and precision carving
  • American hickory handle that’s treated with linseed oil to seal out the elements
  • Includes a full-size leather sheath to protect the blade when not in use
  • Ships in a custom storage box with detailed care and instruction manual
