Fiskars Finland Oy Ab / Fiskars Norden axe


Fiskars Functional R&D

Fiskars never grows tired of reinventing the axe: there are always improvements to be made. The Fiskars Norden axe looks traditional, but features many small innovations. The blade is extremely sharp and coated to make it as easy as possible to cut wood. The axe head and shaft connection has received special attention: it has been made unbreakable by adding a fibre-glass reinforced composite. Fiskars’s return to roots is represented in the wooden shaft, made of hickory here – this also allowed the plastic shaft to be replaced. For decades, Fiskars’s strength has lain in combining practicality and design to make functional products.
