    I just won a Swedish camp axe head on evilBay for $18.50. It weighs 1 pound 10 oz. It's marked HB (Hults Bruk?) made in Sweden on one side. I wanted a small hatchet and I think this will do. How's the quality?

    It looks like the Hult's Bruks insignia to me. She's a beauty, I bet she'll clean up real nice!

    Shoo, speak of the devil, i just got my Gransfors Bruks SFA today. Works like a charm. I had chips flying everywhere.

    Congrats mate, why you call ebay "evilbay?"

    Great score Ahnkochee! It looks like a smaller version of the Swedish army axe that SG had a few months back. That baby should last a couple lifetimes.

    They are so over regulated as to what you can sell, and every year it gets worse. First they stopped the perfectly legal sales of firearms, then gun magazines, and barrels, pretty soon all guns parts, knives, swords, anything with a blade. They have become their own police state. I'd like to find an alternative to both evilBay, and Paypal. Any suggestions? I'll use them while I can until all they have left to sell is bulk chicom garbage.

    My favorite axes. That's the Hults Bruk AGDOR pattern, named after their ancient Rodga forge - the letters are reversed.

    My hatchet is just slightly lighter and came with a 14" helve - depending on how you want to set it up, I think that a slightly longer helve would be ideal due to the mass of the head.

    Read Ross' review of the similar but newer "Husqvarna" hatchet which is made by HB on the same pattern - www.woodtrecker.com.

    Congratulations... that's a great purchase.

    Hey I like the 18" handle, looks good. I haven't decided on handle length or style yet but prefer longer than shorter though 24" would definitely be the max.

    Hmm. I bought a Damascus blade from that place not too long ago. I also bought a sling for my Swedish Mauser. Anyways, i prefer to buy from a private seller. When i bought my International, i walked up the the seller and said "Well sir, i'd like to buy your Ruger International." He said "Well, i'd like to sell it to ya." Gave him the money, shook hands and that was it. When i bought from an FFL, there was no conversation only "Fill this out."

    :42:I sent some ax heads to UP THE CReek and he chose that length and it worked out great, he is doing another for me and a couple for him, as a matter of fact he already gave away a Firestone ax to SGT Mack, that Creek is quite a ax man and quite generous too.:42:

    I have two of these axes. One in 2 1/4 pounds and another that is 3 1/2 pounds. They rock, and hold a wicked edge.

    24" handle would be sweet on that. Go for longer as opposed to shorter.
