The Hults Bruk Almike is a small all-purpose axe.

It is intended for tasks such as making kindling, doing light clearing and for any number of backcountry jobs. The axe can be worn on a belt. This item has an axe head weight of one pound and a handle length of 16 inches.

  • 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.
  • Each axe comes with a traditional leather protective sheath that is embellished with some unique Swedish decorative elements. (Replacement sheaths are available) The axe is shipped in its own storage box and comes with a detailed users manual.

Great axe!

I bought the Tarnaby by accident and returned it for this beast. Mainly the weight difference was the goal. So glad I did. Took it up on a 12 mile hike/camp on the PCT and I’m impressed. Very lightweight yet it handled some fire making chores and still sliced some cheese for my ham sandwich afterwards. Get one and you will be glad you did.

three stars

Overall this is a decent hatchet. For less than the $130 I paid for this item you can purchase a Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet whose fit, finish and craftsmanship is far superior than the Hults Bruk Almike. I cannot recommend the Almike over the Wildlife hatchet.
I like handcrafted tools and believed that, for the price, this would be an excellent hatchet, comparable to other similar Scandanavian axes. That is not the case. Although the head appears to be decently forged, the handle grain is far from vertical and the handle-head fit is AWFUL.
