Whether you're a weekend carpenter or a part-time forester, the Husqvarna Steel Carpenter's Axe delivers the performance you expect in an expertly designed and crafted axe.

Modeled after the tried and true Hudson Bay axe, Husqvarna's Carpenter's Axe is the perfect intersection of form and function with its steel head hand-forged in Sweden and its durable hickory shaft. For a secure fit, the head is fixed to the handle with a steel wedge and is designed so the user's hand is closer to the head for more stability and control over the cutting edge. Ideal for whittling and carving for carpentry, this axe is lightweight and compact at only 2.75 pounds and 19 inches long.

The Husqvarna Steel Carpenter's Axe has a head weight of 2.2 pounds and comes with a leather sheath.

  • Head is crafted out of hand-forged steel and secured with a steel wedge
  • Modeled after the classic Hudson Bay axe design
  • Designed so the hand gets closer to the cutting head for greater blade control and stability
  • 19-inch, curved hickory wood handle with lanyard hole

Surprisingly prompt delivery, good product

VM innovations is the star of this review as I have not used the axe yet. Delivery was faster than i expected and the product was what i expected. I was happy with their response time. The axe itself out of the box could use a bit of polishing and sharpening if you are looking for a razor sharp edge, other than that, it is obviously a high quality axe that is well worth the price. A little heavy but that can be a good thing.

So far so good.

I don't have a lot of experience with axes but so far I really like it.  I bought this due to a tight budget and needing one axe that could serve multiple purposes.  I plan on reshaping the handle a little bit to fit my needs but other than that it's been great.  It's pretty sharp on arival but I plan on working on that a little as well.  It is heavy to use for light work and can get tiresome pretty quick but I could use the workout so I'm fine with that.  It's a nice axe that I can use for light chopping at home or take is camping.  Not sure I would use it as a backpack axe due to the weight but I'll probaly try it out once in that environement just to see.

Good buy for an entry level axe, keep it simple...
The head in an experienced woodsman's hands could use a good tune up, I'll only be able to do the basics with it. Going to give the handle a wraps tune up and a good treatment of boiled linseed oil. Overall for the money, it's a work able tool, has potential.

The item is great! It's exactly what my husband wanted, but the way it was shipped was just shocking! It was literally just thrown in a box, no padding, nothing. It was just bouncing all around in there just the axe in this big box, being tossed around.
It's exactly what my husband wanted, but I don't know how likely I'd be to buy something else from this website if it wasn't a sturdy item to handle their packing job.

great axe for a budget price
Been looking to get back into camping/bushcraft and needed an all-around axe on a budget. This is perfect. Small enough to pack but bigger than a hatchet so it can fell small trees. Nice handle, quality Sweedish head that came reasonably sharp for an axe. Love the leather mask that it comes with. VMInnovations price was $20 less than the going price and shipping was super fast. Very happy!

don't cut yourself
I got this for wood sculpting and whittling tinkering, debranching cedars. It arrived extremely sharp and well packaged with a high quality sheath on it. I did "finish work" on the blade. I honed with a ceramic slab and stropped it on leather a few licks. It is now as sharp as you can get em. This steel really sharpens to a fine razor edge and holds that edge well. The handle is a nice cut of Hickory, grain oriented perfectly and the head is well hung. No cracks near wedge, and handle is straight as a Douglas Fir. There was absolutely nothing I did not like about this axe. The weight is balanced. The sheath is brass riveted and nice thick cowhide with a welt to protect edge.

One heck of a value.
An ideal tool for the outdoorsmen. Not designed to fell large trees obviously but perfect for firewood preparation and woodworking in camp.

it arrived sharp
I make log cabin dog houses, and this hatchet is great for crafting the cedar logs into nice looking cedar shakes to cover the roof. I also split rails with it for cool looking country style split rail fence. I learned the skills on utube, just buy the tools and start having fun. This company has the best price and fastest shipping. I did final finish on the blade for that extreme razor edge. It arrived sharp enough to cut easily, but I wanted the grind marks gone and that smooth steel look to the edge. I have a shipload of axes, or I would buy another one, they are that good! I own Gransfors axes and this Husqy fits right in.
