SAW180: Hudson Bay Axe forged by Rikard Jansson
Wetterlings Swedish Axe Works

The Hudson Bay Axe by Wetterlings of today is forged by Rikard Jansson, one of the skilled blacksmiths at Wetterlings Axe Forge in Storvik, Sweden. The Hudson Bay Axe is made of Swedish Carbon Steel and the bit is hardened to 57 Rockwell C. This is harder than most Hudson Bay Axes on the market.

The Hudson Bay Axe is delivered with a hickory handle and a leather sheath.

For over a hundred years, in the heat, soot and noise of the Wetterlings forge, workers have been hammering shape, soul and passion into glowing iron. Each Wetterlings axe is made to last, to be passed down through generations. Hand forged from Swedish quality steel alloyed from iron, carbon, silicon, manganese and vanadium. Hand forging uses presses that deliver many blows, making the axe edges stronger than if they were drop forged. The special axe steel alloy makes high quality hardening possible. After grinding, hardening and tempering, the Wetterling axes keep a Rockwell hardness of 57-58. These are the main reasons the Wetterling axes hold a keen edge with good "sting" longer than most axes. The handles are lathed from American hickory. The best stress capacity and resistance to blows make hickory the wood of choice for good axe handles. Leather sheath for blade protection. Care and use instructions included.
