Description
 

All of the Kingdom Armory Heritage Collection pieces have incredible backstories, but this Swedish hewing axe, named "The Giant", has an especial cool history. Being as such, David Rydbom went all out on both the axe, and its presentation. From David: "Affectionately known locally as "the Giant", August Hedvall died very young. During that time however he did become the head smith at Urafors and made some of the best designed and still most sought after axes in history Interestingly enough, all seem to be absolutely huge! Due no doubt, to being August the Giant." The head dates back to the late 1800's and was sourced in Sweden. David completely stripped, descaled and restored it into the amazing piece you are now seeing. Dave left some of the original character intact with some original wear and tear, and original makers forging marks including the "A.H." denoting its designer. Dave then sent the head off to Boletus Trinity in Quebec for the white ash handle and crafted leather edge cover. Being such a big, bad piece, Dave wanted to make something extra cool to display it. Dave made a custom frame display with hand stamped brass placards and brass hooks.

About the Rydbom Heritage Collection: David Rydbom started Kingdom Armory due to his passion for craftsmanship and desire to create. In many ways inspired by those before him that crafted durable goods meant to last generations. The Heritage Collection was conceived as a 'tip of the hat' to those that came before. Honoring their blood and sweat by restoring and reimagining their work so it can live on for many more generations to come. These vintage tool heads have be sourced from all over Europe. They come to the Rydbom workshop where David completely restores them and ads touches of that signature Kingdom Armory design language. They then take a trip to Canada where Boletus Trinity crafts a custom, handmade, hardwood handle. Every piece is a 'one of a kind' link between craftsmen separated by generations and thousands of miles.
