Our forest axe is a beautiful hybrid with many types of use. Åby has a straighter edge and grinding, and a good finger notch below the head for increased precision. The long, thin ergonomic handle minimizes the weight , at the same time giving you great force when striking. This axe is perfect for
shelter building, processing firewood and carving, as well as precision work.
In shor t, it is your per fect forest companion. Like all our axes, the Åby Forest Axe is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel. As part of the head-forging process, the steel axe head is struck 40–60 times, thereby increasing its density and resulting in great durability. The Åby is named after the nearest village from Hults Bruk, where many of the workers at the forge lived in the mid 20th century.
