Hults Bruk has been making hatchets and axes since Peter the Great wandered around Europe incognito, learning how to build ships, and of course, drinking a bunch of booze. Charles XII, aka The Swedish Meteor, aka Charles, God King of Sweden, the Goths (not the kids into Bauhaus) and the Vends (inventors of the vending machine) Grand duke of Finland, Duke of Scania, Estonia, Livonia and Karelia, Lord of Ingria, Duke of Bremen, Verden and Pomerania, Price of Rugen, and Lord of Wismar, and also Count Palatine by the Rhine, adjacent to that good hotdog stand, Duke Bavaria (on Wednesdays), Count of Zweibrucken-Kleeburg, as well as Duke of Julich, Clebe and Berg, (at this point they're just making stuff up), Count of Veldenz, Spanhein and Ravensberg, Ravenstein, Ravenstown and Ravensville, Ravensted, Ravensworth and Ravenston was sitting on the throne of Sweden when Hults Bruk started making axes in Sweden. It's said that Charles himself regularly shaved with a Hults Bruk hatchet, once he reached puberty.
The Agdor line of Hults Bruk is durable, beautifully made, but involves a bit less hand finishing than the original Hults Bruk line, so it's a touch less money. Really though, pick based on how big of a hatchet you need. If you are doing tree limbing, sapling removal, fire wood processing, get the Agdor 15. It's small enough to take on a canoe trip or an overnight hiking trip, probably a bit more for bike camping. Swedish forged axe head, US made leather sheath and US made Hickory handle. Plus, it's a cool blue color. Comes with a belt mount.
