The Gransfors Bruks Wildlife Hatchet Axe is the model most commonly used by beginners: it is the second-lightest of our axes, weighing in at approximately 600g. It is of excellent quality, hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods by Gransfors. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith’s initials.
Please note that this axe features the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle and not the Gransfors Bruks logo.
With a length of only 34cm it is a very portable tool, making it an ideal axe to use when packing weight is an issue. This axe can only be used one-handed, and is effective for chopping firewood or light axe carving. This is a first-rate tool, so long as it isn't used to tackle jobs that require a heavier axe. It makes a great partner to the Laplander Cutting Saw for providing a fixed camp with plenty of sound firewood.
Please note that the Wildlife Hatchet no longer utilises a steel pin in the top of the handle. The process of attaching the axe head to the handle has been significantly improved, meaning that the steel pin is no longer necessary, and this change will not affect the functionality of the axe.
