Product Description

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

  1. Great Hatchet, Great Price 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Apr 2021

    This is a good value for the quality. The edge out of the box was functional. There were some grind marks, basically a coarse edge. I went ahead and put a nice razor edge on it, feel like that's how one gets acquainted with a new axe anyway. I like the handle; large enough to get two hands on but still able to swing one handed. The finish on the handle is nice, not lacquered. I did some limbing and cut down some 4-6 inch trees in an area I'm clearing out. It has a 1.75 lb head. That's enough umph to cut deep and drive wedges for felling. I think the $60 I saved to get this rather than the Aneby was totally worth it since I like sharpening my own tools anyway. This would make a good backpacking axe as well as one to keep on your belt.

  2. Hults Bruk Salen Hatchet 4 Star Review

    As always with Ben, ordering was easy and delivery was fast. Thanks for the great customer service! As for the hatchet, this has turned out to be exactly what I was looking for. I've carried the Grans Fors Small Forest Axe for years while traveling the Boreal Forest in No. Minnesota and Canada. However, I spend the majority of my time in the hardwood forests of Wisconsin and the lightweight (1 pound) head of the Small Forest Axe literally just doesn't cut it on the oak, maple and birch I have to work with. The Hults Bruk Salen has the heavier head I was looking for in a 20" axe. The heavier and thicker taper on the head design lends itself to being a much better chopper and easily splits the harder, tighter grain wood in my home area. The fit and finish were excellent and I'm really enjoying the beefier handle design. Not as good of a carver as some, but good enough to make some fine curls and get most carving jobs done. The only reason for not giving it 5 stars was that although the grind was good and even, it was not as sharp out of the box as some other axes I have purchased. A few minutes with a stone and a few more on the strop and it was hair popping sharp. Great little axe for its intended purpose!

    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.
