Further Information

The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe was heralded by Ray for many years as "the number one axe choice for Bushcraft", until the release of the new Gransfors Bruks Ray Mears Wilderness Axe. The Small Forest Axe to this day remains an ever-popular axe and an ideal all-round model recommended by Ray from Swedish company Gransfors, and weighs in at just 1 kg.

Please note that all Gransfors Axes in the Woodlore shop feature the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle and not the Gransfors Bruks logo.

Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith’s initials, while the handle features an exclusive embossed Ray Mears logo.

Each axe is of excellent quality; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. It is fitted with a 50 cm hickory handle and comes with a leather sheath. The length of the handle means it can be used efficiently with one hand or pressed to bigger jobs with two.

For those of you with an interest in axe-forging or blacksmithing, we recomend taking a look at the Swedish Blacksmithing Book.

Protect your axe head from rust and corrosion by applying a small amount of Camellia Oil to the blade.

Details:

  • Ray Mears Bushcraft logo on handle
  • Weight: 1 kg
  • 50 cm hickory handle
  • Protective leather sheath included
  • 20 year guarantee

  After looking at several other reviews online I decided to go with the small forst axe as the erfect compliment to my kit. It came promptly as expected and was very sharp out of the package! the way I imagine any good quality product should. It is light enough to carry and small enough to go into my pack. Just long enough to use with 2 hands, but easily used with just 1. I love that the underside of the bit is deep enough to hold the axe up high and in line with the cantre of the cutting surface. giving me good control for shaving feather sticks and carving the rough bits of a spoon or paddle. Well worth every penny. If it's good enough for Ray to put his name on it will certainly exceed my needs and expectations.

  The Axe arrived in a timely manner and was of a higher quality than I expected. It was a gift for my boyfriend; he is thrilled and excited to use it.

  Just received this fine tool a few days ago, only took a bit over a week from UK to Southern California. I have never before handled an axe with such beautiful balance and fierce bite. The day I got it, I chopped about 50-60 feet of 2-4 inch green branches into 3 foot pieces, plus slicing a lot of little stuff off. Took way less than an hour, and I only stopped because it got dark, still felt fresh, and didn't touch the edge on the SFA at all. What a wonderful tool! No matter where you hold it on the handle, it feels just right. If you shorten up to the head, it cuts like a real nice knife (like an ulu, actually). I cannot recommend this axe too highly, I am most impressed. Much thanks to the folks at Ray Mears for the prompt service and shipping, I will surely get more goodies from you!

  As with others who've bought this axe I'm very impressed, and the accompanying book on Gransfors Bruks is fascinating. You get a real feel for the heritage and care that has gone into these axes. If you are wavering about investing in one, don't. Buy one, you won't be disappointed. And as with other items I've bought from Woodlore it arrived well packed and very quickly.

  I am a camp warden for the scouts, looking after 47 acres of woodland and a young leader mentor. My wife bought the Axe before Christmas; it is the best bit of gear that I have ever had. It's so good, when I showed it to the young leaders they all went out and bought one. Saving up for the Forest Axe next.

  Nice weight, sits well in your hand. It will do everything you need it to and its size means it will fit in your backpack.

  As with all Woodlore kit I've bought, this arrived very quickly, and well packed. The balance of this axe is perfect, even held in a short grip it feels right. It is sharp when you get it and holds up well. Cuts clean and easily with minimum effort. Expensive? Maybe, but you get what you pay for. This is QUALITY and worth it.
