These are the finest axes available in the world today! Each axe is hand-forged by a professional smith in Sweden. The 110 year old family owned business has only 23 employees and you'll find a smith's initials on the head of each axe. Forged from a special Swedish axe steel, the blades are tempered and annealed to the correct toughness. The handles are made of first quality American hickory, and the axe heads are oiled and protected by a grain-leather sheath. Each axe comes with a book that describes maintenance and use in detail, along with photos of the craftsman at work.
Designed for splitting all types of firewood. It is forged and ground to a concave, thin blade at the bit. Cuts quickly and easily into the wood and then effectively splits it as the broader section pushes apart the wood. The handle has a protective steel collar guard at the head and circular grooves towards the end for an extra firm grip.
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 …”
