Product Information:

This axe has a straight edge and thin blade with a low angle bevel face, suited for work in dry wood. Functions like a good heavy knife.

Carpenter's Axe has a straight edge and thin blade with a low angle bevel face, suited for work in dry wood. The forged inward curve from the heel to the lip of the head allows your hand to grip almost straight above the center of the edge. This, and the long straight cutting edge, gives rigidity, stability, and control when cutting. Functions like a good heavy knife. The axe poll is ground and can be used as a hammer. 3-1/2" face 18" handle 1-1/2 lb head. Premium quality axes, hand-forged at Gränsfors Bruks, a family owned forge in a small town in Sweden. As a matter of pride, when the smith is finished and satisfied with his work he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label. Each axe is sharp and ready to cut, has a hickory handle and leather sheath.

    Excellent hatchet

    Comments about Gransfors Carpenter's Axe :

    I am quite fond of high quality tools, and believe me, this is a really good tool. You can read about something all day, but the real proof is having in your own hands, and using it. This is an excellent tool. The weight and balance are good, and it does a great job in a variety of applications. As most other people have observed with GB products, it arrived sharp enough to shave my arm. The thinner blade enables deep penetration, if needed. I can choke up near the head for precise control, or move out toward the end of the 18-inch handle to get some power in a one-handed swing when needed. The handle is high quality hickory, and the grain is oriented vertically just as it should be; many lower priced axes/hatchets are lacking in that regard. People complain about the high price of GB, but I just accept that you get what you pay for. My only suggestion is that GB should make a heavier sheath with belt loops so the hatchet can be carried without worrying about losing it. At this price, I don't want to have to replace it anytime soon.
