How to Find the Right Axe
A large part of Duluth's heritage comes from logging operations. While it may not be the 1800's anymore, woodworking, chopping firewood, and tree felling are all common activities in the surrounding Duluth areas to this day. At Duluth Pack, we love to honor these traditions and give people the tools they need to get the job done, in this case, those tools are quality axes and hatchets.
Duluth Pack carries two iconic and quality axe brands: Hults Bruk and Gransfors Bruk. To learn more about these companies, check out Minnesota’s Logging Heritage on our blog page or click the links to go to their website. Both companies hand forge their axes in Sweeden and join Duluth Pack in being around for over 100 years. These axes are second to none in durability, quality, and performance.

Women do have to be a bit more cautious than men when it comes to solo traveling. It’s a disheartening truth, but it’s best to be upfront and acknowledge it.
