A solid axe is a must for any expedition or vital self-respecting outdoors man
In our experience, some of the best made on the market are the Hultafors range. Hutafors make a beautiful hand-made axe for every use. For our purposes, and for general overland travel we chose the medium sized and very versatile ‘Hunter’. This model features a hand-forged steel head on a perfectly shaped hickory shaft and is supplied with an extremely high quality leather sheath. It is large enough to fell medium sized trees, chop most logs while retaining relative compact size and light-weight. So it can be thrown in a backpack for hiking or camping. The curved blade and rounded back also make it perfect for skinning an animal should that be your wish.
