Nice find! Hard to pin down an exact date The HB Made in Sweden maker’s mark is a cold stamp used before 1988. I believe the pattern is called Vira – the attached photo is from a 1950s catalog.
Beautiful example of a Swedish style carpenters axe. Made with both round and pointed lugs and almost always with a stitched poll.
The “blacked out” coloration is nice. I’m not sure if it was original though.
I got a chance to see something similar not too long ago. The craftsmanship is stunning and the one in the pic is simply beautiful.
I love the pattern on this axe. It is. It the same but reminds me of a Rockaway pattern.
I really like this pattern.
Great axe, love the pattern!
Now, that’s a sexy piece of steel!
This axe is stunning and the craftsmanship is outstanding!!!!
This is by far my favorite Hults Bruk picture on this page.
A tried and true axe pattern, and great example of the high quality Swedish steel, very little pitting at all. Looks like it’s been well kept and in good condition.

Nice. I like axes that are cutaway, to allow you to choke up on the more when carving.
I would love to try this at BATL
Wow I love the look of this axe! I don’t know if the finish is from the factory but it stands out that’s why I love it!
