Length with Handle




Hults Bruk’s traditional Carpenter’s pattern has a thin, long, and straight edge that makes even cuts for rough shaping and detailed carving. The straight 20-inch American hickory handle provides balanced, accurate swings on larger projects. The finger notch near the neck allows the user to choke up on the handle for fine carving work. The squared-off pole is can be used to hammer wood or plastic wedges into place. Never hit metal objects with any Hults Bruk axe.

The cutting edge is approximately 4-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.
  • 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.

"I love the Tibro, I use mine as a large carving axe, using it to rough shape lumber, hew boards and split out blanks for smaller projects, the straight handle allows for precision chopping on bigger projects and the shape of the head allows you the ability to choke up on the handle for detailed carving, the squared-off pole is also a nice touch works great for hammering in wood or plastic wedges when splitting down timber or for hammering in wooden wedges and pegs."
