Small Forest Axe
If you are looking at Gransfors Bruks axes you already know how nice they are and how they are crafted. I ordered the small Forest Axe and the Scandinavian Axe at the same time. I already knew that they were going on back order but I like dealing with smaller companies and not the big chain companies. This was my first time using Piragis but will not be the last time. So far I have placed two different orders and their customer service is outstanding. I called the their customer service one time because I had question about my order and the lady I talked to was great. Very friendly and nice.
About my Small Forest axe and the Scandinavian Axe. They were packaged very well and did not get dinged up from shipping. I’m sure it’s the luck of the draw but both axe handles look amazing. Very beautiful wood grain. Leather sheaths fit nicely and both axes are very sharp. Will probably order the Wildlife hatchet soon too.
Beautifully made forest axe. Well balanced, great workmanship, very sharp. Simply put, a beautifully forged axe. I have had many axes/hatchets and this is hands down the best.
Piragis is great company to work with; quick shipping; great customer service, with competitive pricing.
Right size, right tool
My pops always told me to use the right tool for the job. This one can't be beat for sharpness, quality and size in your hand and in your pack. If you want a reliable camping axe, I recommend you try this.
still sharp !
I've owned one of these for 17 years, used extensively on big game hunting trips. It is still sharp enough to shave hair off my arm! Only complaint is the flimsy sheath snap came apart years ago so I tie it together w/ a leather thong.
Worth the wait
Thanks for sending my axe within the time period you promised. The small forest axe is everything I expected it to be. My very first reaction was, "this just feels good in my hand." It is truly a thing of beauty and was worth the wait.
A better axe can't be found
I think this is the most popular axe in the country. It is well worth the wait though. These guys at Boundary Waters Catalog sure take care of you. I wish I'd bought two. Sharper than any tool I've ever owned and just the right size.
Most Popular Axe in the World
This is the axe more of our customers order than any other axe. It is also their favorite when they receive it. We receive regular shipments of it throughout the year, however only one axe smith forges this model in Sweden. As you can imagine the demand is high and with a quality product only increases. While 3 - 4 months of waiting is possible, this axe from Gransfors is worth the wait. Thank you for your patience, please feel free to call us with questions. Tim Stouffer, Piragis Northwoods Company
