Weight: 56 g         2 reviews
The Ray Mears Leather Small Forest Axe Sheath has been developed specifically for use with the Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe.

This hard-wearing sheath slides onto the axe head from underneath and a heavy leather welt holds it in position safely. The flap fastens over the top with a neat brass Sam Browne stud holding the axe securely in its sheath.

With no strap to stretch or get tangled up, this design fits the axe easily and is compact enough to pop in your pocket when not in use.

Hand-made in-house by a craftswoman with over three decades of experience, the leather is vegetable tanned with the full, natural grain, and hand-dyed to the unique Woodlore colour. The edges are a burnished dark brown with a traditional crease line. Careful selection of materials and accuracy of construction negate the need for metal rivets; stitching is by hand using a rot-proof braided and waxed polyester thread. The Ray Mears 'Snowshoe' logo is discreetly embossed on the lower corner at the front.

For an insight into Ray's ethos on our leather goods, please view our Leather Goods page.

Although this sheath is specifically designed to fit the profile of the Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe it may fit other brands of axes too. The internal measurements are as follows:
  • 7.5 cm at cutting edge
  • 6 cm at top folded edge
  • 5.5 cm at bottom edge
  • 5 cm at opening slot
  • Ray Mears 'Snowshoe' logo embossed on front
  • Weight: 56 g
  • Colour: Rich Brown
  • Axe not included

  10X better than the factory sheath. I’ve had the factory sheath come unsnapped in my backpack. That could have turned ugly real quick. Once you secure this one it’s not coming undone until your ready. It rests in any pocket very comfortably while your working so you don’t have to worry about losing it.
