Splitting wood for a fall campfire, clearing trails of overgrowth, or practicing your bushcraft skills, the Hults Bruk Akka is ideal for overnight wilderness trips, forestry work, and other tasks on the trail or around camp.
The Akka's 1.5-pound axe head is hand-forged from Swedish axe steel in the Hults Bruk forge, which has been in operation since 1697.
Paired with a long, curved 24-inch American hickory handle, it has exceptional leverage and power in a lightweight package of 2.2 pounds ($169). Plus, the Grinding Stone will help keep it in prime condition for years ($44).
A Hults Bruk axe is a functional and unique piece of history, heritage, and art that will last for generations, just like the Swedish brand. Win it on October 11.
All complete, qualifying reviews received October 1-10 count as entries. The winner will be drawn and notified on Friday.

and Kupilka FireSteel 8

Helle has been making knives in Holmedal, Norway, since 1932. Its Wabakimi is a Scandinavian-style, fixed-blade designed in collaboration with survival and primitive skills expert Les Stroud.
A medium sized, well-balanced knife, the Wabakimi is small enough for hip carry, yet amply sized for precise cutting and long carving sessions.
It features a 3.3-inch drop point blade made from triple laminated steel, and it has a three-quarter, partial tang. The curly birch wood handle includes a lanyard hole. A leather sheath is included ($184).
For easy fire-making, even with gloves on or in humid weather, the Kupilka FireSteel 8 creates serious sparks up to 3000 degrees Celsius. Weighing 1.66 ounces, there's no excuse to leave this essential behind ($21). Win both on October 21.
All complete, qualifying reviews received October 1-20 count as entries. The winner will be drawn and notified on October 21.
