This Hultafors Hult Premium splitting axe is perfect for splitting firewood. Its heavy 1.5 kg head takes care of a devastating blow when it touches the block.

With it one refers to the region of Hults Bruk where Hultafors forges their axes. The name is derived from the surroundings in the region: very woodsy.
