Hults Bruk – Agdor Yankee Pattern – Pre 1988

I’m guessing that I bought this axe is the mid 1980’s, and have used it clearing a lot of land by hand over the years.
I decided to buy a new axe this year, did some research and decided on the HB Agdor. I just pulled out my old axe to sharpen and oil it, to keep it handy as a spare, and noticed this logo. Who would have guessed that Is buy the same brand 35 years later!! They don’t sell them anywhere close to here, I ordered the new one from out of state. Which means I must have ordered the old one too, good to know that I did my research back then too! Curious what year and model my old axe is?? Thanks!

    Great story, thanks for sharing! Your first axe was also an Agdor judging from the left over bits of paint. Mid-80s sounds about right. Hults Bruk changed the maker’s mark stamp in 1988 (with the HB logo on one side and weight as a number on the opposite side) to a new hot stamp (with the logo and weights on the same side) that is still being used today on your new Agdor Montreal axe.
