Hults Bruk – Montreal Pattern – Post 1988

I picked this up from a local guy, he claimed this axe is a Montreal pattern but I’m not sure.  Can anyone recognize what style is it?  It’s a 0.7kg or 1.5 lb axe head with a 14 inch handle. It doesn’t look like a original handle to me, and I’m planning to install a new handle for it.  Which my question is, for a 0.7kg /1.5lb axe head, what is the longest handle I can practically used?

    HB began using this maker’s mark in 1988, and it’s still in use. In regards to the handle length, it’s not uncommon for an axe to come in multiple handle lengths, a bit of personal preference. For this size, maybe not longer than 24-inch handle? You can find more info here: – hope this helps
