The overall hands-on feel of the Gransfors Bruks hand hatchet feels 'just right'; for my purpose, it serves as a bushcraft/carving axe and is used for small wood splitting type of work. It would have deserve 5 stars, but similar to some reviewers have observed, I also feel the axe is somewhat 'rough around the edges' and not quite deserving the 'premium' brand image; the handle is a bit rough and the fitting around the neck (? not sure if terminology is correct) is not completely 'tight'. I am not experienced enough with Gransfors Bruks to say whether this is normal, so I'll reserve my judgement. But if I was buying from a physical store with the choice to pick from a few, I probably would not have picked this one.
