Gränsfors Bruks - Hunters Axe
Gränsfors Bruks have been making the finest axes since 1909. Gränsfors Bruks Axes are forged by very professional smiths. The proof of this professionalism is that they are able to forge axes with such precision that no supplementary work to hide mistakes in the forging is needed. A smith at Gränsfors Bruks has nothing to hide and is proud of his professional standards. When he is satisfied with his work and has accepted his axe, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label.
The Hunters Axe is specifically made for hunters. The poll is forged thinner than normal and is gently rounded and burnished to a Flay Poll to be used when skinning an animal. The axe is good for chopping in wood as well as meat and bone. The grip of the handle has circular grooves which provide a steady grip even if your hands are wet or sticky.
|Axe Head Weight||1 1/2lbs.|
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 …”
