What is the best Swedish throwing axe?
on: March 17, 2010, 10:29:23 PM
I've been looking for a nice throwing axe for awhile now and I've heard the the Swedish models are the best. Whice direction should I start? I know nothing about throwing axes.

Thanks in advance for your help.   :cheers:

OK the throwing of axes is interesting. Any one of them can be thrown, however most people like myself usually buy axes spacifically for throwing.
1, are you looking for a full sized ax?
2. Is it just for throwing?
3. How much ya want to spend? The last one really dont count. but it does make a diff.

1. Prefer a mini or small axe
2. Throwing only
3. Under $100

GB makes a great axe, but if you wanbt a real thrower, and really want a piece of art.

http://www.hbforge.com/products/tomahawks.php

All hand made, and he did all mine. Plus he is artist when it comes to fit. They look old, but made to be used.

See for throwing you really need a straight handle. Most hatchets have a bend or belly in them. This causes you to hit the handle a little more. However the straight handle keeps the bit edge in rotation more.

It really is easy to throw them. People usually have them stikcing consistantly in 4 throws. Just one rotation, then 2 then 3.

IF you want cheap but functionable.

It has an oval eye, and the handles are readily available from H&B

But it is not an H&B but does work well for camp chores as well.

Ahhhh, I forgot. XD

Though I usually go with the philosophy that one jackass taking my money is as good as the next one... I go with the one that takes less of my money for something I actually want. ::)

I am not a Lynn fan by any means. I find his hawks do work, however They are on a price line with my beloved H&B but no where close in steel, and usability.
