With a 9 1/2" handle and weighing only 1.5 lb, this hatchet is compact and light enough to carry comfortably in a backpack or on your belt. A great campsite axe, it is well suited to splitting kindling or cutting saplings. It has a 3" face. The handle is hickory, selected for minimal grain runout and treated with an oil finish that provides protection against moisture and helps resist slippage in the hand. The axe comes honed, ready for use, and has a sturdy leather sheath to protect the edge.
As with all Hultafors axes, it is hand forged in a small Swedish factory that has been in operation since the late 17th century. The performance of these exceptionally well-made traditional axes lives up to their fine appearance. As each axe is hand made, its weight and measurements may vary slightly. An excellent tool, built to last a lifetime.
Very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, super friendly and great variety of product.
They've got anything you could need. It's a huge selection, which is surprising for a small town shop. They're amazing people and Collin can answer any questions you have. His knowledge is impressive.
I recently spent a weekend with a close group of friends fly fishing along with Colin and team - incredible preparation & professionalism, quality camp equipment and fishing gear and just a first class operation overall. I would and highly recommend RMFS to any and all fishing skill levels interested in enjoying themselves on the water. It was a really positive experience for our group.
Congrats to Colin and Tammy on the move to their new location in downtown Olds! The prices are fair, they have a great selection and the shipping is lighting fast. Best sticker offerings I have seen south of Red Deer as a kicker.
I had a fabulous lesson with Jordan from Rocky Mountain Fly Shop. We went out on the water and he tailored the lesson to my experience and skill level. We touched on casting, fly selection and an introduction to reading water. It was all hands on and I walked away with the confidence to try new things this summer. It was a perfect morning and I'll definitely do it again.
