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.
