Hults Bruk Atran Felling Axe
The Hults Bruk Atran is a felling axe intended for bringing down or cutting up small to larger sized trees.
This item has an axe head weight of 3.5 Lbs and a handle length of 32 inches. The head is the product of blasted and clear-lacquered ironwork and the curved shaft is made of US-sourced hickory. That handle is treated with linseed oil.
- This axe head is hand-forged and made from Swedish axe steel in a foundry that has been in operation since 1697.
- As part of the production process, the steel is struck multiple times thereby increasing its density and resulting in more durability of the axe.
- The head is constructed in such a way that there is a tempered zone designed to hold a very sharp edge even after many sharpenings.
- Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements. The axe comes with a detailed users manual.

It has held up well to felling the plethora of dead standing pines I have around. It does a nice job with quartering the wood, and is easy to remove from the pitch filled wood. It came shaving sharp but with relatively deep grind marks in the bevel, after a few minutes on a stone it had a mirror bevel and popped hairs with ease.
Works as expected! Great felling axe!
