Hults Bruk – Yankee Pattern – Pre 1988

Started cleaning the rust off this hatchet head that belonged to either my grandfather or his father before him. I was pleasantly surprised to find an HB logo under it all! What do I have and how to I get a replacement handle? It’s time for this hatchet to come out of retirement.

Hults Bruk – Yankee Pattern Hatchet – Pre 1988

Found rusted and without a handle on a trapline in Southeastern Yukon, Canada. Well used. Based on other photos here it looks like it’s pre-1988. It’s a shame to not be able to date it more precisely – that would give some interesting insight into the history of the area and who it might have belonged to.

Any thoughts about the overlapping marks on the bit (seen from the side with the maker’s mark)?

Hults Bruk – Yankee Pattern Axe – Pre 1988

This is the first HB I have had the pleasure of restoring. I’m wondering what the fraction stamp under the “0,8” reads and refers to. It looks like “1 0/4”.
Any other information would be appreciated but I understand that this is a cold stamped head and pre-1988 so could have been made in any year between then and 1900. Under the rust, was blue paint. I’d love to know if there is a specific type of blue used and a specific type of paint.
At first, I thought the axe’s edge had been sharpened or shaped incorrectly by whoever used it previously but realized once I got it off that it was just upside down. It would be nice to know what length of handle this axe would’ve come with as I have some cherry that I’ll use for that.
Thanks.

Hults Bruk – Montreal Pattern – Post 1988

I found this when digging in my garden. Very rusted. It had a straight shaft – the shaft was rotten and had to be removed. It was glued with some kind of epoxy resin. I would like to buy a new shaft and sharpen the axe and bring it back to a usable state. What type and production year might this be? And is it possible to get a new shaft for it?
