The Gransfors Bruks Axe File is a safe and compact tool designed for repairing heavy damage to the cutting edge of your axe. It comprises of a double-sided, fine-toothed iron file, fitted with a small wooden handle; the handle is thicker at the file end to provide a safer grip.

If your axe becomes damaged during use, it is recommended that you use this Axe File to repair the area first. Afterwards, the Gransfors Bruks Axe Stone can be used to restore the cutting edge.

The Gransfors Bruks Axe File can be used dry, but it is recommended that you use it with a small amount of water. After sharpening your axe, Woodlore recommend the use of Ice Bear Camellia Oil to protect the blade from rust and corrosion.

  My axe has taken a beating over the years that I have owned and used it. Eventually the whole head required a good dressing, and the file was the perfect tool for the job. I redressed the axe head prior to my last extended journey by canoe and kept the axe file with me in case of any accidents in which it may be required again. Fortunately, my grinding stones were all that was required throughout my trip, but the file is a very worthwhile purchase, and one that I will recommend to other axe users.

  Good postage and handy size (which is why I purchased it), but the product turned up with the file not attached to the handle, poor glue manufacture! It seems like it is an ok product once I purchase a good strong glue!

  Great service; item delivered promptly. Lovely little file that tackles a big job. Seems to work well- sharpening a splitting maul. Will be happy to continue using it in years to come. Nice looking too, leather sheath a nice touch.

  A tad on the small size for home or the workshop but perfect for the backpack

  A good file, but tiny and not really worth the money.
