Weight: 500 g         25 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.

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

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, while the handle features an exclusive embossed Ray Mears 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 8 books on survival and outdoor skills over the years. Lars is also the course leader on Woodlore's very own Arctic Experience expeditions.

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

  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.

  A beautiful small hatchet, a beautiful tool to handle and carry even before using it. I've seen so many online reviews for this tool and the reviewers miss the point. Lars Falt designed it as a small lightweight hachet to easily carry on the belt and rucksack for quick and easy access and use. It's limited in use due to its size but the average field crafter can get by just fine doing the small essentials around camp i.e. preparing kindling, carving, preparing fire starter, any small job done with a good fixed handle bush knife. All said and done, it's worth the high price and there is a limited supply so buy one as soon as it becomes available. Highly recommended!! Great service from Woodlore, fast and efficient and I have no problem giving my money to Mr Mears; he is deserving of it and one of the better personalities in this media world. Keep up the good work Ray.
