AXES FORGED WITH TRADITION.
Our axes have been crafted in the traditional way since 1697. At Hults Bruk in Ostergotland, there are smiths who carry out work that not many others are able to do. Only a few producers in the world employ smiths who can produce this sort of craftsmanship. Axe heads are forged from Swedish axe steel of a consistently high quality. The steel is stuck many times until the axe attains its final form. This increases the density of the steel and thereby the durability and life of the axe. Our hardening method leaves a clear hard zone within which the axe can be sharpened whilst not detracting from the strength of the edge. Used correctly, our axes can last for generations.
“Function and precision that you can feel in your hand.”
Ask any craftsman you like. They’ll tell you – “If you want the real deal, it has to be Hultafors.” You can rest assured that by choosing a Hultafors tool, you are getting a tool that delivers the best possible function, reliability and precision. Tools that can take all the hard knocks, are durable and, more to the point, feel right in your hand. The reason for this is quite simple. We develop all our products in conjunction with professionals. We understand their work situation and listen to their needs. They are involved in testing the products until everyone is happy with the results. For us, this is the only way of being sure that our tools actually work and make your job easier. The knowledge we have of your workday and that of other craftsmen is undeniably unique. As is our extensive experience. Hultafors was founded in 1883, when Karl-Hilmer Johansson Kollen designed what is now the world- renowned folding rule. Since then, we have spent 125 years developing and manufacturing tools for tradesmen. Tools that you can rely on in all situations, every day.
