Hultafors at the Bushcraftfestivalen 2017

For over 130 years ago Hultafors invented the folding yardstick when the Swedish Mr. Karl-Hilmer Johansson Kollén wanted to embrace the new metric system back in 1883. Today Hultafors Group consist of several brands like; Hultafors, Snickers, Wibe and Solid Gear where perhaps the first mentioned is the most well known among us bushcrafters, for the axes, sledges and knives.




When it comes to the knives; Hultafors today offer around 20 different models and the four last models launched are focusing on outdoor activities like bushcrafting and hunting. Recently also the Hultafors Outdoor Knife model OK4 was rewarded with the Red Dot Design Award.




The Hultafors axe has a very impressive history to tell. Hults Bruk with its forge in Åby Norrköping Sweden was founded back in 1697 when Mr. Jacob Reenstierna purchased the property. There have actually been findings in the area of 5000 years old axes. The more comprehensive axe manufacturing in the area took of in 1880 when Mr. Gunnar Ekelund changed the production method after being inspired by the American axe manufacturing. Today Hultafors offer 25 different axe models and the Swedish axe is a fantastic piece of culture and history that is alive in every way, and well appreciated all over the world.
