Solid Swedish Steel & American Hickory
Head Weight (lbs)
Length with Handle
Designed for use on Australian hardwood, the wide Tasmanian axe profile makes large V-shaped cuts in hard, knotty or frozen wood. The axe head is secured to a solid 32-inch American hickory handle with both a steel and wooden wedge. A great axe for practicing the standing chop, or as a workhorse for felling and splitting.
Arvika was its own forge in Sweden. In the early 1960s, Arvika ceased production and Hults Bruk purchased the brand and 5-Star pattern. For the next 50-years, Hults Bruk continued selling the Arvika 5-Star in select markets, making it a sought-after axe in the United States where it was previously unavailable until now.
The cutting edge is approximately 5.5-inches in length. Note: all Hults Bruk axes are hand forged, so there may be slight variations from axe to axe.
"With a 5.5-inch-wide head handcrafted in Hults' 321-year-old forge and an American hickory handle, this axe makes short work of chopping and splitting even the knottiest wood."
