Hultafors Aby Forest Axe



The Hultafors Aby forest axe is a beautiful hybrid and is part of the new premium range from Hultafors and as such comes with a lifetime guarantee.

Aby has a straighter edge and grinding, and a good finger notch below the head for increased precision. The long, thinner, ergonomic handle minimises weight and in doing so delivers a greater striking force.

This axe is perfect for shelter building, processing firewood and carving as well as precision work. In short, it is your perfect forest companion. Like all Hultafors axes, the Åby forest axe is hand forged and made from high quality Swedish axe  steel. As part of the head-forging process, the steel is struck 40-60 times, thereby increasing its density and resulting in greater durability. The Aby is named after the nearest village from Hults Bruk, where many of the workers at the forge lived in the mid 20th century. 

  • Wooden handle from American hickory, treated with linseed oil
  • Straighter edge with Scandinavian grind
  • The edge is sharpened, polished and ready to use
  • Leather axe sheath included

The handle length of this model is 24" (60cm), and the weight of the head is 0.7Kg. Each axe comes with a sturdy leather sheath. 

Shaving sharp "out of the box".

Great Axe

Great service from Natural Man even though delivery was a bit late, this was not Natural Man”s fault though. I have used the axe in felling a Silver birch and it really does the job very well. Very tiring work but the axe is perfectly suited for the work, my initial thoughts when it arrived was that it was too small but it worked very well. This is my 3rd Hultafors axe but not my last. Will buy from here again, best price on the web I could find.

Aby forest axe

Natural man is a great store with quality products. The Aby axe is a good size and suits it’s purpose, not sure if it will last as there is some pitting in the steel, some are very deep. The forging isn’t as good as expected, Also the steel ether side of the handle is very thin, around 3mm so not to sure how well it will stand up to its intended use. hultafors have a lifetime guarantee with it which is good as I might have to use it.
