Hultafors Agdor Yankee Felling Axe 0.8kg
The 800g Hultafors Agdor Yankee Axe is the smallest model in the *Agdor Yankee Axe range. The head is Hand Forged from special Swedish carbon steel using time tested methods the Hults Bruk forge has been using since 1697. The Axe features a 650mm Swedish made American Hickory handle providing a perfect combination of beautiful balance & strength. Having the same head as the 800g Agdor Hatchet but a longer handle allows this axe to be used like a hatchet when held higher on the handle or a full 2 handed swing when more power is required.
Having a lightweight head provides an extremely fast head speed when striking. This gives a more efficient cut when using light springy wood as the fine head bites deeper rather than push the branch. It is favourite of Campers, Caravaners and people in the bush as it is an extremely efficient axe that is lightweight and easy to carry behind the ute seat in the caravan or attached to a hiking bag. It is suitable for cutting Kindling, Shelter building and light/medium clearing tasks.
*Supplied with a Raw edge which requires final shaping and honing. We recommend a Hultafors Grinding Stone to get the job done properly.
- The Axe features a bead blasted finish with a clear lacquer for added protection.
- The steel is stuck around 70 times under a power hammer, this refines the grain structure of the steel increasing the durability and edge retention of the Hatchet.
