Are wetterlings axes good?
Are wetterlings axes good?
This axe is the greatest by far. It is hand forged-very hard quality steel.It is ground to perfection and retains sharpness. Wetterlings saws their own handles from American hickory. I like this better than my Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe because the bit is longer and the handle is longer.
Are Gransfors Bruk axes worth it?
The Gränsfors Bruk axe is a serious tool, unadorned and raw. And it really works. I have used the Small Forest Axe and the Wildlife Hatchet, and both are great, but I gravitated more to the Wildlife Hatchet model.
Where are Wetterlings axes made?
All production takes place in our axe forge in Storvik, just outside Gävle. The company started in 1880, and Wetterlings now exports axes to ten or so countries and also manufactures some of the axe-models for Gränsfors Bruk.
Is Hults Bruk the same as Gransfors Bruk?
Gransfors offers tree fellers their American Felling axe, and so does Hults Bruk. They’re both the same length – 32 inches – but the cutting edge on the Hults Bruk American Felling axe is just a bit longer (4.875” vs 4.5” on the Gransfors Felling axe) and the axehead – slightly heavier (3.5 lbs vs 3.3).

What’s the best AXE on the market?
Which is better Hults or gransfors forest axe?
I think Hults has improved even more with the introduction of newer models since then. For a high quality budget bushcraft axe, the Hults Salen 20″ Axe with a 1 3/4 lb head is a great deal compared to a Gransfors Small Forest Axe ($84 vs $135) if you don’t mind something a bit less finished.
Which is better gransfors Bruk or Hults Bruk?
They are made by Hults/Hultafors. They just have a rougher overall finish. If you don’t mind less than perfect balance and a synthetic handle, Finnish made Fiskars Axes are outstanding deals and chop better than nearly anything I’ve used. Bahco Axes, like what Ben’s and FourDog sells, are also great budget axes.
Which is the best bushcraft axe to buy?
For a high quality budget bushcraft axe, the Hults Salen 20″ Axe with a 1 3/4 lb head is a great deal compared to a Gransfors Small Forest Axe ($84 vs $135) if you don’t mind something a bit less finished. I’ve reviewed several of the Husqvarna Axes and think they are probably still the best deal around if you’re on a tight budget.

Gransfors axes were perfect the way they were. Unfortunately, we might see that change if the pro-green staff takes over Gransfor’s manufacturing process
