Hults Bruk Almike Hatchet Swedish 16 Inch Hickory Handle Axe - H840702. 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 hand grinding 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. The Hults Bruk Almike is a small all-purpose hatchet. A perfect sized hatchet for camping cutting small firewood and fine carving. The Almike is a lifelong all-purpose tool for the garden camp or wilderness survival. Featuring a classic turpentine pattern axe head intended for tasks such as making kindling doing light clearing and any number of backcountry jobs. The axe can be worn on a belt or easily tucked into a backpack. This item has an axe head weight of one pound and a handle length of 16 inches.
