Helko Swedish linseed oil
Finest quality, cold-pressed raw Swedish linseed oil for seasoning wooden hatchet and axe handles. A natural and environmentally friendly, deep penetrating oil that nourishes and seals wood, and enhances grain definition.
Our handles are coated in linseed oil, but to properly season a wooden handle more coats should be applied over time. The old saying when you get a new handle is, “Oil it once a day for a week, once a week for a month and once a month for a year”.
Produced in small batches, this Swedish farm made oil is matured for 6 months before bottling, to naturally improve its quick-drying properties. It is 100% pure and has no chemical drying additives. Touch dry 1-2 hours, fully dry 24-48 hours. Drying time may vary depending on thickness of coating applied and local climatic conditions.
