Delivery options:

Rocksolid guarantee

Shop with confidence. If it’s not working out, you can return it (consumables, electronics, undergarments and swimwear excluded).
Really. If it's not up to snuff after you use it (a couple times) you can still bring it back. It lasts longer than 30 days, but not forever. We'll be fair about it.


Designed for light forestry work and small-scale felling, the Ekelund axe is a solid backwoods companion. This compact axe is handy to have at the cabin, strapped to the side of your pack or in your truck. The smooth hickory heartwood haft (axe-talk for handle) is comfortable in a variety of grips, from choked-up for fine work to dropped-back for chopping. Known for premium materials and classic technique, a Hultafors axe will serve your family for generations.

  • Swedish tool steel head holds its edge and is incredibly tough
  • Head hung using a standard eye-to-haft so it’s easy to replace the haft (this head will outlast the handle)
  • Heat-treated axe head is softer towards the handle and harder (58-9HRC) along the edge
  • American hickory haft provides excellent mechanical advantage
  • Linseed oil finish on the hickory haft
  • Leather sheath protects your hatchet’s edge
  • Hultafors axe heads feature a lifetime warranty
  • Hand finishing means no 2 are exactly alike
  • Hand-forged in Hults Bruk, Sweden
  • Named after Gunnar Ekelund, a Swedish squire who initiated large-scale axe production in Hults Bruk in the late 1800s
