Hults Bruk Arvika 5-Star Racing Axe boasts a massive 4.5-pound, hand-forged Swedish steel axe head.

Designed for use on Australian hardwood, the wide 5.5-inch blade profile makes large V-shaped cuts in hard, knotty or frozen wood. The axe head is secured to a solid 32-inch American hickory handle with both a steel and wooden wedge. A great axe for practicing the standing chop, or as a workhorse for felling and splitting.

Arvika was its own forge in Sweden. In the early 1960s, Arvika ceased production and Hults Bruk purchased the brand and 5-Star pattern. For the next 50-years, Hults Bruk continued selling the Arvika 5-Star in select markets, making it a sought-after axe in the United States where it was previously unavailable until now.

The 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 hand grinding 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.
  • The curved hickory handle is treated with linseed oil.
  • The Arvika is designed to be profiled and customized by the end-user, a practice recommended only for those with experience.

Maintainence: Always Oil the Axe Head to keep it from rusting after every use. Use Linseed Oil on the handle from time-to-time for waterproofing.

Beautiful axe, arrived fast

Haven’t had a chance to swing it yet but the Arvika arrived and it’s a beauty. Handle is also better than I was expecting and came with one of those HB leather sheaths as well. Product shipped very quickly, super happy with the purchase, and barring anything unforeseen, I would definitely order an axe from North River in the future.

Great Axe For a manly man!

Nothing better than 4.5 lbs for a good workout. The axe was sharper than my knife out of the box. Well made product. Will buy more in the future.
