DESCRIPTION

A classic trekking hatchet from Hulfators, a perfect outdoor companion, wether you are hiking in the wild or just need to work on the camp fire. The hatchet comes in handy for almost any task in the forest, but first and foremost for camp site work, such as collecting and processing fire wood and building shelter.

Because of its versatility and light weight, Hultån has become Hulfators best seller. The hatchet is hand forged and made from Swedish quality steel in their forge at Hults Bruk. The forging tradition goes as far back as 1697 and the hatchet is named after Hultån, the stream where the water for the water wheels was once taken.
