Hults Bruk Akka

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.

I have had this axe for going on three years now and it hasn’t let me down! The curve of the handle and the length are perfection! The carpenter style axe head make carving a breeze and this thing chops like none other! Great axe and would recommend to anyone.
