    Showed up at my house today. I was pleased to see on online retailer this week had a agdor axe from hults bruk and i grabbed one before they were gone. Apparently not previously available in the usa I've wanted one of these montreal patterns for some time. Nice axe, in line with their more economical line of utility axes, I swung it around a bit in some walnut bucks. Good heft and balance, handle feels great. Its a 2.5lb head at 28 inches. The hang could be seated a little better i think, big old gap on either side of the handle. But solid no wiggle with my very short testing. I think i might un-hang it and seat it a little lower. Visually it will look better. It's clearly to high on the neck of the handle. Probably polish the bit out some more to when i have it off.
    Still pleased overall with it and that these are finally available.

    Just picked these up from a little family run mom and pop hardware store near me.
    15" on the hatches 23" on the boys. All seem to have great grain.

    I had to buy out all they had in stock. Too much of a bargain.

    A rehang is definitely in order for that one.
    Not even the chinese hardware store garbage around here has hangs that bad, the gaps thougho_O
    I expected more from hults. What's the steel like?
    In the short time I had a modern gfb before flipping it I noticed it was extremely hard and rung like a bell.
    Wrong sort of blade profile for these parts though.

    Interested in the little one to the left of the leather sheath, lower side. Wonder if it is marked and if you would want to sell. Message me if so.

    Got this the other day. Will be an interesting project trying to undo the damage from a prior owner. If I can pull it off it's a really nice stamp on a good head...

    Oh thats a beautiful stamp and a Connecticut pattern in a prior life. I hope you can get that wonky eye back a bit to hold a handle.
    Hope to hear what and how it goes hammering that back into shape, even just a little.
    Great for you wanting to save it and try

    A vise, a piece of wood to cover the stamp, some heat, and lots of leverage is the way to go.

    Yeah, that's about what I had in mind, along with a bucket of water to keep the blade temper...

    That two handed egg beater with the shoulder brace is a cool piece. Beautiful slim little handle to. Great finds as usual.:thumbsup:
