    Seller Refusing Refund

    I think you are missing the point. The handle is very obviously replaced (he did not tell me nor was it on the advert), you can see very clearly from the image. The wedge has been hammered by hand and has shattered before it could be driven home, the metal wedge is sitting proud of the wood. You...

    Restoring an old axe

    From my understanding the early Sandvik axes were indeed made by Wetterlings and are marked 'SANDVIK SWEDEN'. The later axes with just 'SANDVIK' (sometimes SANDVIK GERMANY) were manufactured by Helko Werk in Germany. They do sometimes turn up with their makers stamp hidden under the old paint or...

    Excellent job! It really does show that even the worst condition tools can still have many decades of service left in them.

    2lbs Hults Bruk Axe

    Thank you very much indeed. It really is amazing how well the vinegar works on the heads, the rust literally falls away. Would love to see a picture of the 7lb head, that will be a real beast when finished!

    2lbs Hults Bruk Axe

    Cheers Tony. This one took about an hour and a half to sharpen and hang, the head itself was left in White Vinegar for 24 hours to clean of the rust. I like taking my time with these, quite a nice thing to do after a day at work.:)

    2lbs Hults Bruk Axe

    Hello all, Just thought I would show a recent Hults Bruk restoration I have finished this morning. Its a post- 1988 (probably early 90s) 2lbs head fitted on a 27 1/2 inch Hickory handle. I used to own a Gransfors Scandinavian Forest Axe but sold it as I felt the handle was just a bit on the...

    augers

    I did some work on an estate last year and the gamekeeper showed me a patch of woodland closest to the village. The local scout group (with good intentions I might add) had used the land with the permission of the landowner for shelter building etc a few years before. Anyway, rather than just...
