Hults Bruk – Brazil Broad Pattern – Pre 1950

Hi, I wonder if it is possible to identify this. The mark is worn but I can make out the logo, HULTS and below that Fa(b?). There are no visible marks on the reverse. Thanks in advance

    I think you’re correct about the pattern – Brazil Broad Pattern with an oval eye. Hard to tell the date range without the full stamp. My best first guess is this axe a was made before the 1950s. You might be able to see a weld mark near the bit, though it might be hard to see. Prior to 1950 Hults Bruk axes were made of two separate steels. The main part of the head was made of iron and high-quality edge steel was then baked into the axe bit. It can be very difficult to tell if an axe was produced in this way. From 1950 to today the axe head is forged from a single piece of steel.

    I’ll try to find more info about the FAB part of the stamp, I’ve not seen that one before.
