Hults Bruk Tarnaby Hatchet Swedish 15 Inch Hickory Handle Axe - 840022. The Hults Bruk Tarnaby is a small all-purpose hatchet for basic uses such as making kindling doing light clearing and working in the garden. This item has an axe head weight of 1.25 Lbs and a handle length of 15 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. The handle is treated with linseed oil. The axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697. As part of the production process the steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe. The head is constructed in such a way that there is a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings. A traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements is included.
