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

  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.

  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.
