With its ground neck and medium-weight head, Ekelund Hunting Axe is ideal for easier forestry work as well as for skinning game with great precision. This makes it your perfect hunting par tner. It is also an ideal gift for any hunting enthusiast. Like all our axes, the Ekelund is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel. As par t of the head-forging process, the steel axe head is struck 40–60 times , thereby increasing its density and resulting in great durability. The name of our classic hunting axe comes from Gunnar Ekelund, the squire who, inspired after a trip to the USA, initiated axe production at a larger scale in 1870–75.
