Every axe bears its own distinguishing mark
Just like over 100 years ago, a hand forged Wetterlings is the product of genuine craftsmanship. Every axe that leaves the factory in Storvik, Sweden has its own unique character. Every one bears its own distinguishing mark.

An axe to trust
Wetterlings make versatile axes for hunting and carpentry, heavier axes for felling trees and splitting logs. They are tools of the highest quality in terms of durability and performance.  A Wetterlings is not only an axe - it's a friend you can trust.

Hard and sharp Swedish steel
It all starts with Swedish steel. Wetterlings use first-rate Swedish steel that contains alloys of silicon, manganese and vanadium. These alloys allow a high-quality tempering of the steel. A hand forged Wetterlings axe has a hardness of 58-59 Rock-well, which is far higher than that of most other axe manufacturers.

A task that requires both patience and time
A Wetterlings is slowly forged in a forge press. This is a methodical task that demands patience and time, and is entirely dependent upon the skill of the blacksmith. The result is an axe that has a very fine grain structure. After having being hammered for a long period of time the steel becomes extremely strong and can be ground to a high level of sharpness.


About Wetterlings (*extract from Wetterlings Officical Website)
The history of Wetterlings started over 100 years ago. On a spring day in 1882 the engineer Otto Wetterling disembarked from a train in Storvik Sweden. For several years he had studied the production of axes in the USA. His brother, Sven Axel Wetterling had earlier started producing axes on a small scale in a forge in Storvik. His company was named S. A. Wetterlings Manufacturer, or, in short, S. A. W.

Otto Wetterling immediately became supervisor. Using ideas gained from the new country, and craftsmanship and experience from the old, the brothers created a piece of legendary industrial history. Since then the forge has been in uninterrupted use for almost 125 years.

Today, 10 people proudly continue the tradition of producing world class axes. The forge is in Storvik twenty kilometers west of Sandviken. An area in Sweden where people since time for the vikings have worked with iron.

Wetterling Axes are hand forged from quality Swedish 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 "string" 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.

An axe from Wetterlings is made to last. With a little care, your axe could last forever.
