Weight: 500 g         27 reviews
The Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe is the lightest addition to our wide range of Gransfors Axes, and was developed with the help of Lars Falt.

As with all of their products, it is of excellent quality; hand-forged and made using traditional Swedish methods. Each axe head comes individually stamped with the smith's initials.

Please note that this model features the exclusive 'Ray Mears Bushcraft' logo on the handle, and not the typical Gransfors Bruks logo.

The Outdoor Axe has been designed to have numerous uses: limbing trees, chopping and splitting firewood, and also as a heavy knife for wood carving or simply cutting food. Despite its size, the Outdoor Axe can even be used for felling trees when kneeling, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy head.

The Gransfors Outdoor Axe was developed with the help of Swedish survival expert Lars Fält. As well as establishing the Swedish Defence Survival School, Lars has written several books on survival and outdoor skills over the years, including a collaboration with Ray in 2016 called Out on the Land.

  • Exclusive Ray Mears Bushcraft logo on handle
  • Weight: 500 g
  • Handle: 37 cm hickory handle
  • Protective leather sheath included

  This wee axe is what I expected, great fit and finish, the usual hand forged head and sharp as anything. I gave it a bit of TLC and now it shaves. I've done a bit of limbing and some chopping and look forward to using it on canoe camping trips as soon as we are free to do so. I like the profile of the blade as it will split wood easily so I think this will be a very versatile small axe. I am pleased I bought it and cannot thank the customer service staff enough for the advice.

  I've been looking for a good quality axe that's lightweight and easy to carry when hiking & camping. I'm a big fan of Gränsfors Bruks and as soon as I saw it listed on here I bought it. The fact that each axe is hand forged makes it that much more special and a sign of quality. The axe was delivered securely and well packaged and took less than two days to arrive. I'd highly recommend.

  A great axe to have in your pack. Can be used to split logs, trim branches or make a feather stick.

  Perfect little axe for a day pack. It came razor sharp. It bites deep in to wood despite its size and weight. Makes short work of tent stakes and kindling.

  The head was out of alignment on this particular axe. Poor workmanship on poll. Generally poor workmanship for a GB product. Design is great, terrible execution.

Dear Nina, Thank you for taking the time to provide your review on the Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe. I am very sorry to hear that you have received a less than perfect axe, we will be in contact with you directly regarding a resolution to this issue, which on this occasion looks like a one-off manufacturing error.

  Great little axe for round the camp chores and light day wood trips. It's light but powerful for all round work.

  This axe itself would be really nice but was hafted offset to midline with a poor grind and a big gap at the back. This is of course the fault of Gransfors Bruks production line and should have never made it through quality control, however it should never have been sent to me in the first place. I sent it back to Gransfors Bruks and after some discussion they decided to send me a new axe free of charge. Bottom line is that GB makes a good axe and they stand behind their product. I hope that better inspection of axes is done before they are shipped out in the future. I am sure that if I contacted Woodlore they would have refunded my money or replaced the axe, but these things should not be necessary when you purchase a premium tool.
