Hults Bruk – Turpentine Pattern – 1958

I was given this axe from a barn in Lier, Norway. I was visiting relatives at the “old family farm” and they had this axe in a scrap pile to be thrown away. I saw covered in rust but it had a great shape so I cleaned it up and discovered the markings! I’d love to hear about the rough age of the axe.

Hults Bruk – Swedish Army Axe – Vira Pattern – 1960-70s

Another ax of the swedish army, the steel was almost unused, only the handle was broken and was renewed.
It’s a cutting ax, not to split, but I can not say anything about age and type.

Hults Bruk – Yankee Pattern – Pre 1988

I came across what the title describes, and am looking for information.
1. Head and handle have paint, but it looks more orange than red. Is this normal from aging, or more likely from and owner? The hatchet has remained in a remote campsite in Alaska for many years.
2. What head pattern is this?
3. Is it possible the handle is original too? I’m not sure if the shape and hole match original.
4. Does anyone know where NOS or repro. Head stickers can be purchased for this? And is it the black sticker that I need?
5. Does anyone have info on color-matching the original colors, ie. paint codes, paint type, etc.?

Any further info or suggestions would be tremendously helpful as I begin to restore this hatchet.

Hults Bruk – Swedish Army Axe – 1960-70s

Hello,
I think this is a Yankee Pattern from the Swedish Army, made before 1988. She was a little bit used, but now with a new handle, she looks good and works very well. very handy and balanced in the hand. Greetings from Germany
