American Felling Axe - Designed by Dave Canterbury
The Hults Bruk American Felling Axe by Dave Canterbury is an American-style, straight-handled axe.
Felling large trees the traditional way is an art requiring skill and a proper axe. Understanding the features of a tool, and the tool’s intended purpose, are key elements to consider when creating the perfect woodsman’s axe. By meticulously pairing the right style of axe head with the right kind of handle, the American Felling Axe drops dense, large sized trees effectively, allowing the user to work longer without tiring. Featuring a straight handle to reduce wrist pivoting on the swing and a renowned, reliable Montreal pattern axe head. Useful for more than just felling, the pattern features wide cheeks for splitting and a long, razor sharp bit for felling, bucking and processing wood. The axe head weighs 3.5 pounds and the handle is 32 inches. Overall Weight: 5 lbs.
Hults Bruk axes are 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 premium American 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. The axe is shipped in its own storage box and comes with a detailed user’s manual.
Hults Bruk Premium Axes:
These are hardworking pieces of art, unrivaled by even the best-known brands. Meticulously hand finished to increase durability and illuminate the beauty of the natural materials. First several stages of hand grinding are performed to produce a shaving-sharp edge. Next the American hickory handles are hand sanded and oiled with several coats of linseed to condition and protect the wood. Hults Bruk Premium Series axes come with a full-sized leather edge protector that secures to the axe with an adjustable leather lace and storage box.
