Gransfors Bruks Axes


Gransfors Bruks from Sweden are famous for their axes and edge tools. They have been hand forging tools for over 100 years and have a deserved reputation for their quality and product range. Each axe has the individual blacksmith's initials stamped next to the Gransfors Bruks logo (LE - Lars Enander: UN - Ulrik Nielsen: MM - Matthias Mattsson: MS - Mikael Sundberg: LP - Lennart Pettersson: KS - Kjell-AkeSjolund: RA - Rune Andersson).

Please note our prices include VAT and delivery is free for UK mainland orders £45 (inc VAT) and over.

The Axe Book

This is "The Axe Book" that accompanies every Gransfors Bruks axe. It is a great little read that gives an insight into the history, workings and philosophy of the factory - 36 pages. After forging, each blade is ground to and honed to a razor edge before being fitted with a hickory handle and protective leather sheath. Gransfors Bruks believe in the quality of their tools so much that they offer a 20 year guarantee.

Large Splitting Axe 442
Ref: GB442


Designed for splitting chunks of wood, "rounds". The axe head is quite heavy with forged cheeks on both sides of the blade, "splitting wedge shaped crests" which power apart the grain of the wood. A Splitting Axe does not just have to slice into the wood - the thick axe blade pushes the wood apart.

The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is definitely not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge.

The axe has a 3" face and a 27" hickory handle and weighs 5lb.

Large Carving Axe 475
Ref: GB475


A chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic wood carving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head’s eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face makes the axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements. This new axe pattern, based on old Swedish carving techniques, is developed by Wille Sundqvist, master craftsman and author of Swedish Carving Techniques in cooperation with craftsman adviser Onni Linnanheimo. The handle is "rugged" to give a good grip.

The axe has a 4 1/3" face and a 14" hickory handle and the head weighs 2 lb. Supplied with protective leather sheath.

Available as Double Grind, Right or Left Handed.

Unfortunately the left hand grind is not currently in stock. Please call us on 01473 784 983 or email sales@classichandtools.com to be added to our waiting list.

Swedish Broad Axe 4801
Ref: GB4801


The pattern of the Broad Axe and the handle is based on old Swedish logging techniques for squaring logs and structural timbers of all kinds. Has sufficient space between the "blade’s beard" and the handle for the user’s fingers. Beveled on two sides (double beveled) or on one side, left or right. The eye (and the direction of the handle) may be straight or sideways angled, right or left, to protect the knuckles. One side beveled, left side, normally goes with an eye angled sideways to the right. If you want deeper visible cuts when squaring logs, you may even have a broad axe, double beveled, with the blade bent and the eye angled sideways to the right or to the left.

The broad axe has a 7" face and a 20" hickory handle and the head weighs 3 lb. Supplied with protective leather sheath.
