Further Information

The Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe is the lightest addition to our wide range of Gransfors Axes, and was developed with the help of Lars Falt.

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.

As with all of their products, it is of excellent quality; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials, while the handle features an exclusive embossed Ray Mears logo.

The Outdoor Axe has been designed to have numerous uses: limbing trees, chopping and splitting firewood, and also as a heavy knife for wood carving or simply cutting food. Despite its size, the Outdoor Axe can even be used for felling trees when kneeling, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy head.

The Gransfors Outdoor Axe was developed with the help of Swedish survival expert Lars Fält. As well as establishing the Swedish Defence Survival School, Lars has written 8 books on survival and outdoor skills over the years. Lars is also the course leader on Woodlore's very own Arctic Experience expeditions.

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.

  This gift was very well received. The axe came with a sheath which I hadn't realised, and bought a sheath separately. In the end I'm glad I did buy the separate sheath as the one that came with the axe split on the second day.

  This axe is amazing. Craftsmanship at its finest in a very handy package. In my opinion, this is essentially a tomahawk built to Gransfors Bruks standards. I can't say enough good things about it.

  This is a handy hatchet around the campsite. I took it on a moose hunting trip in Alaska and it worked great for campsite firewood. I use it around the yard to limb up trees and shrubs. I prefer this handle length over the mini-hatchet. For prospective buyers in the U.S., buying from Woodlore is more cost effective even including shipping and you will still have the great 20 year guarantee.

  Now this axe is superbly crafted and sharp and I have already used it for cutting food at camp and lots of other chores, deals with them so easily. Couldn't be without this axe, thank you Gransfors and of course the great Lars for your design through years of knowledge.

  The Axe is extremely light weight and fits well in your hand. I used it to chop down some dead standing trees in order to replenish fire wood in a trekkers hut in the mountains. It did a great job felling the trees and splitting the logs as well.

  Delivery: ordered at dinner time Tuesday, received Wednesday. Axe: one word. INCREDIBLE. Just done a two hour job limbing leylandii hedge of 4 dozen limbs 0.5 inch up to 2 inches in diameter. The axe was a pleasure to use, perfectly balanced, perfect weight, perfect handle length, almost effortless. I have never had the strength to do such a job manually before. You need to be quite accurate with the smallish axe blade but the small axe head concentrates the force into the shaving sharp edge making the most efficient use of the very packable weight, and the steel band on the handle behind the head protects the handle from any misses. I had a go at the same job the other day with my Fallkniven A2 it was simply not up to this task (neither was the hedgetrimmer as the limbs were too large). As a middle aged man I have finally learned a Gransfors Bruk small axe and light weight Mora are far far far more versatile for a myriad of tasks than a large 'flash' knife.
