Hultafors Agdor Yankee Felling Axe 1.2kg
The 1200g Hultafors Agdor Yankee Axe is the mid-size 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 700mm Swedish made American Hickory handle providing a perfect combination of beautiful balance, strength and power. With the head weight of 1200g this Agdor Yankee Axe is in the heavy end of the ¾ Axe range. It is just light enough to hold higher up on handle and use like a Hatchet but has the extra weight to achieve efficient cutting results when doing heavier tasks.
Having a mid-weight head still provides a fast head speed but also good power when striking. This gives a good compromise when using on light springy wood or heavier tasks as felling a mid-size tree. This is a perfect Axe when you need a combination of ease of carry and cutting power. It is favourite of users who want an all-round Axe with a bit of extra Power. It is suitable for felling of medium trees, cutting kindling, shelter building and all kinds of tasks when a bit of power is required.
*Supplied with a Raw edge which requires final shaping and honing. We recommend a Hultafors Grinding Stone to get the job done properly.
