Weight: 900 g         20 reviews
The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe is a classic tool of the outdoors, and remains the best-selling model from the revered Gransfors range. Thanks in large part to its longstanding reputation for reliability, ease of use and superb build quality, it is arguably the most popular axe in the world of bushcraft. Indeed, Ray Mears heralded this model as "the number one axe choice for bushcraft" for many years, until the release of the Gransfors Bruks Ray Mears Wilderness Axe collaboration in 2010.

The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe is an excellent all-round choice for woodworking in the outdoors. It features a larger head and longer handle than the Wildlife Hatchet model, and therefore provides more chopping power. However, the Small Forest Axe is still small enough to fit into a rucksack.

The Small Forest Axe is excellent for felling trees and limbing, and the length of the handle means that it can be used efficiently with one hand or pressed to bigger jobs with two.

Each axe is forged using traditional methods in the same factory, situated in the Swedish village of Gränsfors. As a guarantee of quality, each axe head is individually stamped with the smith’s initials.

  • Original Gransfors Bruks logo on handle
  • Protective vegetable-tanned leather sheath included
  • Comes complete with a copy of the Gransfors Axe Book
  • 20 year guarantee
  • 49 cm hickory handle
  • Weight: 900 g

  Let’s be honest, any Gransfors Bruks product is world class. My only minute request would be related to the handle. It was a bit rough. Of course I treat all my handles with boiled linseed oil but it could have been a bit more factory refined.

  If there’s an ultimate bushcraft camp axe, this is it. It’s profiled excellently and cuts through wood like butter! I now want a bigger one to match!

  Really happy with my purchase. Well, my husband is! Purchased the week before Christmas, was contacted the next day (order placed in the evening) for ID verification, which was easily submitted. Axe arrived two days later in time for hubby's Christmas present! Couldn't be happier with the service and hubby is thrilled with his Gransfors axe. Be warned this is a seriously sharp, professional axe, not for amateurs. Product is beautifully made, exactly what you expect from Gransfors Bruks. Will definitely use company again, excellent service, thank you Woodlore.
