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 foundry, 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.
