Hultafors being GB direct competitor have many different models of axes widely available most places where axes are used.. but a couple of years ago there was a lot of talk about a high quality product that failed miserably on the quality control front. Wrong grinds, dodgy handles you name it. Only thing always consistent were the sheaths (lovely looking things I might ad). So has anyone bought one recently or used one of late? Am curious if they have gotten their **** together? Such a fine forge with illustrious history deserves, and indeed is expected of, consistent quality work.
