There have been some twenty axe forges in Sweden, most of these started around 1900. Today, there are very few left. Wetterlings employ around 9 people, the has taken a step back, and now the old knowledge and forging craftsmanship, are key.
Unnecessary chemicals have been banned and paints are becoming increasingly rare. The forged, unpainted axe has become a statement of the craftsman’s skill.
The business is based on the following maxim: “You can not really own an antique axe forge – it belongs to our joint industrial history – but one can assume a responsibility. A responsability to nurture and pass the knowledge previous generations have created, and that hopefully will outlive its keeper, on to the future.”
