Designed for precision and mobility, the Jonaker hatchet excels at woodworking, carving, and light splitting tasks while backpacking, camping, hunting, working on the trail or in the backcountry. With a curved 9.4-inch handle, this hatchet fills the niche between a larger carpenter’s axe and a carving knife. Weighing just 1.5-lb. the Jonaker is a capable hatchet that’s easily packable and can be worn on a belt. The cutting edge is approximately 2.875-inches in length. Note: all Hults Bruk axes are hand forged, so there may be slight variations from axe to axe.

  • The axe head is hand forged at the historic Hults Bruk, a forge that has been in operation since 1697.
  • Each axe is made from high-quality Swedish axe steel, expertly tempered to hold a very sharp edge even after repeated sharpening.
  • Blackened, hand-finished, razor-sharp with a polished edge.
  • American hickory handle, sanded, protected with linseed oil and engraved with the HB logo.
  • Each axe comes with a premium leather sheath with a loop or holster for hanging the axe on your belt, shipped with a storage box and detailed user’s manual.

"The 9.4-inch hatchet is the most compact within the company’s limited arsenal, one outfitted with an solid hickory handle and hand-forged with Swedish steel, the latter of which will gleam whether it’s striking kindling in the wilderness or quietly sitting above your living room mantle."
