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).

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.

Book and protective leather sheath included.

Gransfors 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.

Available as Double Grind, Right or Left Handed.

Book and protective leather sheath included.

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

Large Carving Axe 475-H - Right Grind 118.00



Gransfors 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.

Book and protective leather sheath included.

Gransfors Swedish Broad Axe Right Handle, Grinded Right Side 4823
Ref: GB4823a


You're probably most familiar with traditional Right-Hand and Left-Hand Axes, which are used on their respective sides of the log. These axes' heads are both bent and twisted at the forge, and they are bevelled like a chisel on one side only. This lets the axe's eye and handle stand clear of the timber while the user employs a straight, easy swing to let the flat face of the axe shave the surface like a huge plane. The axe heads weigh 3 lbs., and are 7" wide. 20" textured hickory handles allow short, controlled swings for accurate work. The axe is fitted with a tight-grained hickory handle.

Available Right Handed (bevelled and twisted to RH side).

Book and protective leather sheath included.

Gransfors Splitting Hatchet 439

The small splitting axe, with 2½ lb. head, 2½" face & 16" textured hickory handle, is ideal for splitting kindling & smallish stove wood. It is designed for one-handed use. Note this axe’s poll is not hardened for use as a sledge.

Gransfors Splitting Hatchet 439

Quantity:  



Gransfors Small Splitting Axe 441
Ref: GB441


Can be managed with one hand. Forged and ground to a concave, quite thin blade at the "bit". This design helps the axe to enter the wood rapidly and to efficiently split it when the thicker part follows to push the wood apart. The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is not designed for pounding on a wedge. The head weighs 2 lb. The face is 2½". The 20" hickory handle has circular grooves at the grip and steel collar near the head.

Book and protective leather sheath included.
