Gränsfors Bruks Hand Forged Scandinavian Forest Axe
Gränsfors Bruks has a huge power hammer on which some very fine axes are forged. The axes being built today are unlike the hundreds of models made in Sweden 100 years ago. Each model was made exactly alike and ground smooth, polished, painted and labeled. That industry is dead, and I think that the huge hammer mentioned above is left over from that time. It is brilliant that Gränsfors Burks has now built a business making axes for hunters, post & beam builders, wood carvers and others who still need fine axes today.
The Scandinavian Forest Axe is a professional axe for those who want to limb a felled tree in the traditional way. The long handle gives extra strength and power to the cut. Think of it as a first class substitute for your grandfather's "Hudson Bay Axe". Has a 3-1/2" face and a 25" hickory handle. The head weighs 2 lb. Ships with a grain-leather sheath. Made in Sweden.
