  • 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.
  • Straight American hickory handle, sanded, protected with linseed oil and engraved with the HB logo.
  • Each axe comes with a premium leather sheath, shipped with a storage box and detailed user’s manual.

"If you think of a Viking battle axe, this is it. It's a double bit throwing axe and it's terrifyingly sharp. It would also look amazing on your mantle."
