Welcome to MCQBushcraft.co.uk. I am currently working on a large number of orders and have set the web shop stock to ‘out of stock‘ as not to overload my order book. Please feel free to email me though if there is something you are interested in and I can get back to you asap about its availability. Mike – [email protected]
Hultafors Classic Hunter Axe Collar cut from a heavy duty 4mm thick veg tan leather. The leather is dyed then wet formed around a standard axe handle making it fit with little adjustment. The Hultafors Classic Hunter Axe Collar is treated with Gold Quality Leather Grease and left on a heat source to absorb deep into the leather. This makes it very effective it repelling water and not holding water against the axe shoulder.
The Hultafors Classic Hunter Axe Collar is designed to protect your axe shoulder from an overstrike. An overstrike is when you swing the axe head beyond a log striking the log with the axe shoulder. This will gradually damage the axe shoulder splitting the wood grain. If you have bought yourself a new axe then I would recommend an Axe Collar until you are comfortable with using the axe. I use my axe very regularly and I still use my collar for aesthetics and protection. If you want to have a go at making your own collar click here.
Fitting The Collar
You will find that this Collar fits a range of Axes with a similar sized shoulder to the Hultafors Classic Hunter. The Axe Collar will arrive partially wet-formed and pre- strung so that it can be slid up the Axe handle and secured. My advice would be to first rub some bees wax into the shoulder grain of the Axe handle, then soak the axe collar for several minutes until it is soaked through. Slide the Axe Collar up the handle and shape it to the shoulder using your hands. You can now lightly take up the slack on the Axe Collar to keep the leather to shape around the handle. Leave in a warm dry place but not in direct heat from a radiator. Once completely dry tighten the cord on the Collar completely and tie off at the bottom.
