Win the Akka from Hults Bruk, World's Oldest Axe Maker
We're celebrating centuries of Scandinavian craftsmanship this month with three premium gear giveaways from Hults Bruk, Helle Knives, Nordic Pocket Saw, and Kupilka.
First up, Hults Bruk, the oldest active axe maker in the world, is giving one Trailspace member a hand-forged Akka forester's axe. Functional and elegant, Hults Bruk axes are handcrafted in the company's Swedish forge, which has been in continual operation since 1697. Our winner also gets a grinding stone to maintain that sharp edge (total prize value $213).

Hults Bruk Akka Forester's Axe and Grinding Stone
Whether splitting wood for a fall campfire, clearing trails of overgrowth, or practicing your bushcraft skills, the Akka is ideal for overnight wilderness trips, forestry, and trail work.
The Akka's 1.5-pound axe head is hand-forged from Swedish axe steel in the Hults Bruk forge, which has been in continual operation since 1697.
Paired with a long, curved 24-inch American hickory handle, the Akka has exceptional leverage and power in a lightweight package of just 2.2 pounds. It features a straight knife-ground edge and a finger notch near the neck for carving ($169).
A Hults Bruk axe is a functional and unique piece of history, heritage, and art that will last for generations.
The Grinding Stone will help keep your Akka in prime condition for years. It has a 180-grain rough side and 600-grain fine side and is designed to give a steady grip while regaining axe sharpness ($44).
All complete, qualifying reviews received October 1-10 count as entries. The winner will be drawn and notified on October 11.
