Hultafors 3405022 Agdor Tasmanian Felling Axe 2.0, Raw Edge, Quality Sheath
Time Tested Hand Forged Swedish Axes Since 1697
The 2000g Hultafors Agdor Tassie Pattern Axe is the Largest full-size model in the Agdor Axe range. It is a hardwood eating BEAST! The head is Hand Forged from special Swedish carbon steel using time tested methods the Hults Bruk forge has been using since 1697. This Large felling axe was originally developed by the Arvika forge for competition and serious chopping and was inspired by Australian Racing Pattern Axes. Arvika was its own forge in Sweden until early 1960s when they closed the doors and Hults Bruk purchased the brand and Tassie pattern. For the next 50-years, Hults Bruk continued to produce the Tassie Pattern for select markets, making it a sought-after axe the world over as it was previously unavailable in most markets until now. The axe features a Swedish made 800mm American Hickory handle and a wide 140mm convex cutting edge. This is the perfect axe for large scale heavy duty use in forestry, heavy de-limbing, splitting and as a training axe for the standing chop before stepping up to a professional competition axe. If you love Australian Hardwood axes this is the axe you MUST HAVE.
