    Husqvarna clearly subcontracted production of this axe to Hults Bruks, one of the oldest and finest axe makers in the world. But to keep costs down, they left it rough around the edges. If you want a fine Swedish axe at a fraction of the cost of Gransfors Bruks and are willing to put a little elbow grease into it, this is the deal of the century.

    The handle is hickory; all nicely aligned and grain direction on my axe was indeed perfect. Tightness of the grain was above average. However the linseed oil finish needs sanding down. A little scraping with a chisle near the axe head also helps. Finish up with a coat of bees wax/orange oil and you are left with a beautiful handle.

    The axe head is hand forged with the Husqvarna symbol deeply embossed. It shows traces of grinding marks and the edge is no where near the hair cutting sharpness of a Gransfors Bruks. However the Swedish steel is there and the profile is correct. You just need to be willing to devote about 2 hours on a Japanese waterstone to get it razor sharp. The profile of the axe blade is thin, making it good for limbing, felling small trees and making kindling. However its lack of wedge shape makes splitting of larger logs challenging, as the blade tends to stick into the wood. (ie, more of a slicer than a splitter)

    This is the perfect camp axe at a bargain price. Get them while you can!

    This review is from: Husqvarna Multi-Purpose Forest Axe (1.9 Lbs) With 26″ Handle (Tools & Home Improvement)

    I purchased this axe after looking for a general purpose tool for some time. I read up around the web and learn this axe is made by Wetterlings, the very well known and respected axe producer out of Sweeden. Other than the Husqvarna markings on the haft and bit, this axe is vertually the same as the similarly sized Wetterings version (I believe the Wetterlings model is called a Forrest Axe).

    Once I rec’d the axe, I actually took it the a local knife/outdoor/tactical store which is a Wetterlings dealer. The very educated salesman explained the only differences in the two axes are the marking and the quality of the hickory haft. Upon close inspection and comparison, the salesman and I could find no difference in the quality of the wood used. In fact, my Husqy appeared to be slightly better. I explained to the saleman that I had spent a little time sanding my axe haft to remove the painted on “Husqvarna” label, and applied a few coats of linseed oil to protect the wood. This little bit of work produced an excellent result; the haft looks and feels great, with a smooth finish and hand rubbed appearance.

    The steel on the Husqy bit appears to be of the same quality as the Wetterlings. Expect to see the forging hammer and tool/grinding marks left after the making and shaping of this handmade tool.

    The leather sheath supplied with the axe is well made and of a simple design, but different than the one supplied with the Wetterlings.

    I have now used the axe six or seven times for a varity of tasks from felling a 6″ hardwood tree and limbing it out, to preping kindling for a backyard campfire.

    Save yourself a twenty dollar bill and buy this axe over the slightly more expensive Wetterlings version.

    I wish Amazon would update the picture of this axe.

    The currently shipping axe does not look like the picture. In addition, it is now being made by Hults Bruk, not Wetterlings.

    When I bought mine, it was shipped by Baileys and they called it the Traditional Multi-purpose Axe. Baileys did update their website since then.

    A Swedish quality steel at half the price of a GB, what’s not to like?
