Hults Bruk Salen hatchet 20"
A small, practical outdoors axe, hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel using traditional methods in use since 1697. The steel is stuck several times, increasing its density and thereby the durability of the axe. Excellent for use in the great outdoors, can tackle most jobs.
1 3/4 lb. head
20" Hickory Handle treated with linseed oil
Leather blade guard
These axes come with a sharpened working edge.
This 20" sized axe with 1 3/4 lb. head will do quite a bit more work than the 1.5 lb. axes,and still be very portable...I really like this size 20" axe.
These hatchets are a high end mid grade axe, I think they are a excellent value as the head pattern and swedish steel is excellent.The only thing that seperates these models from the high end axes is that the edge is not polished as sharp and the sheath is not quite as nice.
With that said....I really really like these axes!
Made in Sweden

The hatchet is good but not great. It's not hand forged but the grain is good and head is secured well. I would like to see Ben's offer the Husqvarna line of hatchets and axes. These are awesome axes for the money. Truthfully, I wish I had purchased the Aneby Hults Bruk. I believe the quality would have been much better for not that much more.

I received my hatchet. It was just what you told me it would be. I love it. I haven't used it yet but I am eager to. Thank you for your straight forward advice in choosing the right axe. I would never have picked this one out on my own. I am proud to own this hatchet and I know I will enjoy using it. Thank you for finishing with a belt sander and thanks again for the advice.
