The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe is a classic tool of the outdoors and remains the best-selling model from the revered Gransfors range. Thanks in large part to its longstanding reputation for reliability, ease of use and superb build quality, it is arguably the most popular axe in the world of bushcraft. Indeed, Ray Mears heralded this model as "the number one axe choice for bushcraft" for many years, until the release of the Gransfors Bruks Ray Mears Wilderness Axe collaboration in 2010.
Please note that this model features the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle, and not the typical Gransfors Bruks logo.
The Gransfors Bruks Small Forest Axe is an excellent all-round choice for woodworking in the outdoors. It features a larger head and longer handle than the Wildlife Hatchet model, and therefore provides more chopping power. However, the Small Forest Axe is still small enough to fit into a rucksack.
The Small Forest Axe is excellent for felling trees and limbing, and the length of the handle means that it can be used efficiently with one hand or pressed to bigger jobs with two.
Each axe is forged using traditional methods in the same factory, situated in the Swedish village of Gränsfors. As a guarantee of quality, each axe head is individually stamped with the smith’s initials.
