The Gransfors Bruks Scandinavian Forest Axe is a full-sized, two-handed axe from Gransfors. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials, while the handle features the embossed Ray Mears Bushcraft logo.
This axe is of excellent quality, hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. With a 64 cm helve, an experienced axe user will have sufficient strength to use it one-handed.
Please note that this model features the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle, and not the typical Gransfors Bruks logo.
Ray reserves this axe for use almost exclusively in boreal forests in winter where the demands of limbing snow-covered branches and chopping into the tight grain of slow-growing timber present tough work. This is a beautiful axe to use, with a pleasing weight and swing.
For those of you with an interest in axe-forging or blacksmithing, we recommend taking a look at the Swedish Blacksmithing Book
Protect your axe head from rust and corrosion by applying a small amount of Camellia Oil
to the blade.
