The Hults Bruk works was established in 1697, 79 years before the United States declared independence from the British crown. Today the factory is a compelling combination of the new and the old, where the underlying culture and character of exquisite Swedish ironworking has endured since the beginning. Hults Bruk now produces axes for all modern applications, from backpacking to hunting to professional forestry.
