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 remains to this day an ever-popular axe and an ideal all-round model from Swedish company Gransfors Bruks, 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.

Each axe is of excellent quality; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. Each one is fitted with a 50 cm hickory handle, and comes with a leather sheath. The length of the handle means that 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 recommend 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

  Fantastic piece of kit. Have owned for a few weeks and have put it through its paces, absolutely delighted with this axe, well worth the investment as can see it has a long lifespan! Speedy delivery from the Woodlore team. Thanks.

  Item is as expected A1 quality. Have just used to see how it splits small wood, must say very impressed. I am sure this will be handed down to my son, this is one good quality product that is why I ordered it from Australia and the price was better than getting it local here.

  First thought was that it's small. Razor sharp out of the box, I have a bald spot on my arm that proves it. I chopped down an 18 round standing dead red oak with it. Took some doing but the little guy did it. It's great for shaping wood. I made some wedges with it that I used to split an 8 x 20 oak log in half. I started by pounding the SFA into the logs check. I really like this tool, and I'm looking forward to passing it down once I have a kid or one of my nieces or nephews is big enough for it and shows interest in the outdoors.

  Really happy with this tool. I have read reviews and watched videos about it, so I bought one and tested it. Couldn't be more happy. What a great tool. Besides the fact that the product itself is very good, you even got the folks at Ray Mears shop, that surpasses your expectations. Like the fortunate help and attention I got from Harvey. If the success of a business resides in the knowledge and care of its employees, Ray Mears is set for a great success. I really recommend this axe and this is the place to buy it. Very happy camper.

  I have been using this axe for nearly a year now as I wanted to put it to good heavy work before submitting a review. It is quite simply a masterpiece, the perfect weight and size for what I use it for, which is pretty much anything you can think of from felling trees thicker than my thigh to a spot of light carving. Money well spent indeed!

  Arrived already as sharp as a razor, a good handle length for single or two handed work, made splitting small logs simple. A great axe.

  The best. Fits in my daypack. Required very little work to get it to a reasonable level of sharpness. Beauty.

  Everyone who has seen this axe has remarked on how beautiful it is - I agree! Fortunately, yesterday I was able to use it in anger and it performs very well too! Only log splitting so far but even there the balance and weight felt very good, The edge was nice and sharp, and although not a specialist wood splitter, it had no problems. Nice size and weight for portability. Recommended.
