I bought this Small forest axe as a gift for a friend so sadly didn't get the opportunity to use it. However upon inspection I can confirm that it was of the highest quality. The grain of the handle was perfect, running perfectly straight from the knob to the eye and the Ray Mears logo on the handle was nicely done. The axe head was as impressive with a good grind and a nice leather sheath. Compared to my own older Wetterlings (which I also consider to be very good axes) it is obvious that the slightly higher price of the Gransfors Bruks is well justified and they deserve their reputation as excellent high quality tools. Having previously purchased other items from Ray Mears Woodlore website it was an easy decision to buy this axe from them, the customer service and advice they offer is second to none as is the quality of the products they sell.
