I’m new to using an axe. Hultafors have been making axes for centuries so it’s an obvious choice to consider. I only want an axe for light duties so the hultan is perfect. The axe itself has a very sharpe cutting edge and the hickory shaft is well balanced. The sheath is of good quality leather. Only improvement I can suggest with such a quality axe it should be supplied with a overstrike leather sleeve.
A well made, well presented utility axe.. very impressed
I have to say how impressed I was with the customer service I received from Naturalman, their phone lines were busy when I initially called but they phoned me back without request soon after and were quick to answer my question on stock availability. I quickly placed my order online (discount on first order) and I received my Hultan hatchet within 48 hours, securely packed and delivered by Royal Mail, (such a relief to find a company that doesn't use Hermes, Yodel et al.) This Hultafors hatchet is a quality tool and was purchased as an upgrade on my old Agdor. The Hultan is sharp behind the thick leather blade cover and it's made in the same Hults Bruk forge in Sweden as the Agdor but being lighter it's more likely to make my backpack weight when I next go for a wander. Naturalman sell some quality gear, I'll be back.
EXCELLENT SERVICE AND PRODUCT ALTHOUGH THE HANDLE WAS A LITTLE ROUGH NEEDING SANDING TO REMOVE SOME SPLINTERS IT ONLY TOOK A LITTLE FINE PAPER ON IT AND ALL WAS FINE.
Haven’t put the axe to use yet, as I’ve been lovingly applying the old blo to it but I have no doubt that it will perform perfectly. Super service from Natural Man - had minor issue that Mark dealt with swiftly. Lightning delivery speed too. Will be looking to add to my axe collection with a future purchase from Natural Man.
