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.
