The Hatchet features a curved 500mm Swedish made American Hickory handle providing a perfect combination of beautiful balance & strength. The Hatchet carries the name Ekelund paying homage to Gunnar Ekelund, the man responsible for increasing Hults Bruk production to a larger scale from 1870-1875. The Ekelund Hatchet features a ground pole, designed to be used for skinning, processing of game, shelter building, firewood and any task required in a survival, hunting or trekking encounter making it the right choice for any outdoor adventurer that requires a dependable companion in the wilderness.
