The Hults Bruk Agdor Hatchet is a small, portable, all-purpose tool that you can use for light work on the farm, kitchen garden, or camping trips. You can use the hatchet to chop small trees and twigs, drive tent stakes, make hot dog spears, and clear out campsites.
It is 15 inches long and weighs approximately 2.2 pounds. In addition, the 1.25-pound head is expertly forged from high grade Swedish steel, and the handle is made of hickory treated with linseed oil. The cutting-edge of the Agdor hatchet measures 3.5 inches.
Since the axe is hand-made, some degree of variation between the axes is expected. This ensures that every axe is different and unique. As with many of the best hatchets and axes, the hickory for the handle is outsourced from the United States. The 15-inch handle provides excellent handling for working in the garden and camping.
You will find the hand-forged blade painted Agdor blue sharpened and ready for use. It also comes with a leather sheath made using traditional methods in Waynesville, North Carolina. The final product follows the North American axe handcrafting tradition, featuring a Yankee pattern.
Experts at Hults Bruk made the axe head, which has been producing reliable hand-forged axes since 1697. Aside from using high-quality steel alloys, Hults Bruk ensures that the steel undergoes three grinding stages before its mounting on the American hickory handles.
