Hults Bruk – Completely Unknown Pattern – Pre 1988
This axe belongs to my friend. He bought an old farm a few years back and the axe came with it. It is old and battered, but the HB mark is still visible, along with something I presume says Made in Sweden. The handle is not original. It has been painted blue at one point – could this be a factory paint job? I am not able to see any other markings.
I have offered to brush it up for him, but he declined since it sees regular use splitting wood for the fireplace and does that job quite well. I guess – if it´s not broken, don´t fix it. I could not find this in your catalogs, but it appears similar to the Bjork, although without the chamfered sides. Thanks for looking. Can you tell me anything about this axe, just by looking at the photo?
