The Gransfors Bruks Hand Hatchet is an excellent small hatchet from Swedish company Gransfors. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials, while the handle features the embossed Gransfors logo.
The distinguishing feature of this axe is its short handle relative to the size of its head. It is extremely practical to carry in your rucksack on forest walks, or to keep in the car as it takes up very little space. The shape of the sheath, which covers the edge and the top part of the poll, also stops the axe head cutting in to your rucksack. The Hand Hatchet makes an excellent scouting and camping axe. Despite its short handle, the axe can be used to fell small trees. It is also great for limbing and for splitting kindling and firewood.
