The wilderness axe is awesome! I'm on the east coast of the US. 2 weeks and it was in my hands. I shaved my arm hair with it. I have used it every day and love it. Great purchase, great seller!

Well worth the wait! The Wilderness Axe by Gransfors Bruks is outstanding! This axe is built to do it all! It comes razor sharp. This axe is compact and has just the right weight for a back pack. I am on the notification list because I want a 2nd one! Very fast shipping to the USA. 5 stars to the Woodlore team.

A fine tool which was delivered in super quick time. A pleasure to use. Not the cheapest Gransfors option but it is a very versatile bit of kit.

Fantastic bit of kit! Used extensively in the North Woods of Minnesota, for both larger limbing work and smaller woodworking projects. Perfectly sharp and the quality that one would expect from Gransfors Bruks. Excellent service and delivery to the US by the Woodlore team; thank you.

This axe is a true all-rounder and lives up to the quality that you expect from Gransfors Bruks. I have used this axe for a while now and it is still my go-to axe to cover all needs when outside working with green wood. The long handle allows two handed chopping to fell small trees with ease, slight curving of the handle means that your grip never feels like it is going to fail you when you are swinging the axe. The heavier head allows good penetration into the tree and a good keen edge on the blade makes easy work of trees up to 6 inches in diameter. The weighting of the head allows you to also work this axe with one hand closer to the head without it taking too much effort to chop smaller pieces of wood for kindling or cleaning up of smaller branches of trees. Where the handle length and extra head weight does stand it apart from other Gransfors axes is when you are limping a log, it simply does it with ease. The sheath is basic but it does the job. Overall I am impressed with the performance of this axe over others, keep it sharp and look after it, the handle and the sheath and it will become a faithful partner to most people working in forests or with green wood regularly.

Superb axe designed by the master. I have a Small Forest Axe as my main pack axe. But the heavier head and length of the handle gives the Wilderness Axe the edge. If you don't own a GFB axe and are looking for your first, then of the two, this is the one I would choose. I just wish it had been available when I bought the Small Forest Axe! It comes packaged extremely well and there were no marks on the handle, however I do think that some of the blacking to the face of the axe has been rubbed off from storage with other axes. A minor point, but I am quite picky. The 'bit' is bigger and deeper than the SFA and makes splitting a cinch. It was near shaving sharp when unboxed, but I stropped it before use and the edge (as with all GFB axes) took a mirror shine. I'd recommend making a leather axe collar, and sealing any place where the wood and metal meet with beeswax to stop moisture getting in, but even without this, this axe will give you years of service in the toughest environments. I also stained the handle with gun stock oil, as the unfinished (well it's dipped in boiled linseed) looks nicer darkened down in my opinion). As does the leather sheath, just brush in black boot polish to make yours less shiny. Of course you don't need to do any of this, it's a top piece of kit right out of the bag. Thanks Woodlore and Ray Mears. You did it again 9.5 out of 10.

Outstanding product. The Wilderness axe is the perfect compromise between the Small Forest Axe and the Scandinavian Forest Axe. Razor sharp!

A beautifully crafted axe, not too big, not too small - easy to use even single handed. Perfect for general work in our woods.
