Wood Trekker: Hultafors/Hults Bruk Agdor Axe HY 10-0,9 SV Review


  • In this review I will take a look at an axe that is not available in the US, but many of you have probably heard about. I thought people might be interested to see how it compares to some better known models. Of course this model is widely available in Europe, so this review might have more practical value to European readers. I hope you enjoy it. It certainly took me forever to try to get one of these axes shipped to the US. First, a bit of background. This axe is actually made by Hults Bruk, a well known manufacturer of axes, with a history spanning back for centuries. Relatively recently Hults Bruk was purchased by Hultafors, a manufacturer of striking tools. Even though now technically part of Hultafors, Hults Bruk still controls the production of the axes. That is why you will see both the Hults Bruk and Hultafors stamps on each axe head. Hultafors now produces two lines of axes. One of them is the Agdor line, of which this axe is representative.

The handle of the Hultafors Agdor axe is just a little bit longer than that of the Scandinavian Forest Axe. In all other respects they are virtually identical. The grain orientation is very good. The Hultafors handle is not as well finished as that on the Gransfors Bruks, but the differences are minor. For example, the area around the lanyard hole is not as well sanded as it is on the Gransfors Bruks.

The whole axe measured at 2lb 12oz, while the Scandinavian Forest Axe measured at 2lb 8oz. That is because the Scandinavian Forest Axe actually has a head that weighs closer to 1.75 lb rather than the advertised 2 lb. The head is attached to the handle using a wooden wedge and...
