Gransfors Bruk - Hand Hatchet
A small little hatchet for quite heavy work, the Hand Hatchet is easily packed in a backpack, a toolbox or carried on the belt. Can be used as a hatchet or a knife, for cutting small branches, chop sticks for camp fire, artistic wood carving, etc. The hatchet comes with a grain leather sheath that protects the sharp edge. The design of the sheath allows you to easily carry the axe on your belt.
Forged from a special Swedish axe steel, the blades are tempered and annealed to the correct toughness. First quality hickory handles. Axeheads are oiled and protected by a grain-leather sheath. Each comes with a book that describes maintenance and use in detail, along with photos of the craftsman at work.
Note from the Forge
'“Gränsfors Bruks Aktiebolag is currently experiencing a shortage in axes, hatchets and accessories driven by an unusually high global demand on one side and constraints in the supply chain on the other. The imbalance in demand and delivery capacity is likely to continue for the foreseeable future.
The increased demand is not isolated to our industry, and we are experiencing shortages on most of our raw materials. Steel supply is very constrained now and Gränsfors is working closely with our suppliers to secure deliveries of key materials. We have increased our raw material buffers to counter the longer lead times, however on some specifications the lead times are long and uncertain beyond what can be managed with increased buffers alone. The huge global demand for steel has of course also driven up prices, and we are seeing significant price hikes across our raw material spend. While steel is the biggest driver of both supply constraints and cost, the same dynamics can be seen on our other raw materials, e.g. hickory …”
