This Hultafors Wetterhall Premium throwing axe/Viking axe has been enhanced with a double-sided head. This type of axe was previously often used by lumberjacks. They would use one side for the rough work and the other for the more precise tasks. Today this axe is mostly used during throwing contests. This axe is meant to be thrown with two hands, from behind your back over your head. You do have to be careful though that you don’t hit your own back! It comes with a leather sheath.
The axe head is forged out of Swedish axe steel. The edge is so hard it will be strong enough to remain sharp without breaking, but can be sharpened as well. Basically everything you could possible ask for in an axe head. The Hultafors axes are reliable and guarantee a long life. For this reason Hultafors is giving out a lifelong guarantee on the axe heads in the Premium axe collection.
Hultafors uses American hickory wood for its axe handles. This type of wood is excellent at absorbing blows without breaking. As such it is perfect to use as a handle for hammers and, of course, axes.
