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 all Gransfors Axes in the Woodlore shop feature 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.

For those of you with an interest in axe-forging or blacksmithing, we recomend taking a look at the Swedish Blacksmithing Book.

Protect your axe head from rust and corrosion by applying a small amount of Camellia Oil to the blade.

Product Reviews

Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe is rated 5/5 based on 11 customer reviews

  Small axe with great capacity. Cuts large diameters better than I expected. Splitting wood goes easy and for wood carving projects very suitable due to the low weight. Fits easily in your backpack.

  Received quickly and it was packaged well. I purchased this from Woodlore because the colour of the handle is darker than anywhere else and because it is stamped Ray Mears instead of Gransfors Bruks. What I received was excellent, but the handle was a light color and the Ray Mears stamp was very lightly embossed. Due to the coating of Linseed Oil and Beeswax, to protect the handle, it won't except stain. I burnished it with a torch and recoated it with linseed oil to make it a little darker. No big deal. However the Ray Mears logo almost completely rubbed off with a single pass of fine sandpaper. Regardless, it is a fine product. I had read a review of the head being slightly out of alignment wtih the handle, and I found mine was the same. But still not a deal breaker. It's a fine hatchet, redesigned to be more axe-like, but I also desired this design as it is more tomohawk-like, with its longer, straight handle. All that said, I love it. I may rehandle it with wood I can stain darker, but it's not worth the timme at present. It's a great axe. I'm giving it 4 stars simply because of the embossed logos being so lightly applied and the picture on the Woodlore site showing it with a darker handle.

  This axe is a bit overpriced, yet exactly what I needed in regards to size, shape and weight. Service and shipping speed was excellent, as always from Woodlore. The axe itself seems to be of superb quality as well. Has a little roll on the heel from quality control which does not compromise usability. The sheath is kind of average but it does its job. I have yet to see how this axe will hold on after extended use. I gave this axe a five star rating because it is exactly what I needed and because of the hassle-free experience with Woodlore's service. If I had to configure price into the review I would not give a rating higher than four stars.

  This gift was very well received. The axe came with a sheath which I hadn't realised, and bought a sheath separately. In the end I'm glad I did buy the separate sheath as the one that came with the axe split on the second day.

  This axe is amazing. Craftsmanship at its finest in a very handy package. In my opinion, this is essentially a tomahawk built to Gransfors Bruks standards. I can't say enough good things about it.

  This is a handy hatchet around the campsite. I took it on a moose hunting trip in Alaska and it worked great for campsite firewood. I use it around the yard to limb up trees and shrubs. I prefer this handle length over the mini-hatchet. For prospective buyers in the U.S., buying from Woodlore is more cost effective even including shipping and you will still have the great 20 year guarantee.

  Now this axe is superbly crafted and sharp and I have already used it for cutting food at camp and lots of other chores, deals with them so easily. Couldn't be without this axe, thank you Gransfors and of course the great Lars for your design through years of knowledge.

  The Axe is extremely light weight and fits well in your hand. I used it to chop down some dead standing trees in order to replenish fire wood in a trekkers hut in the mountains. It did a great job felling the trees and splitting the logs as well.  

 

Rated: 4/5
