Large Splitting Axe
Gränsfors Bruks, making the finest axes since 1909! Gränsfors 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.
Designed for splitting chunks of wood or "rounds". The axe head is quite heavy with forged cheeks' on both sides of the blade, "splitting wedge shaped crests" which power apart the grain of the wood. A Splitting Axe does not just have to slice into the wood- the thick axe blade pushes apart the wood. The poll of this axe, like the poll on most axes, is definitely not designed for heavy pounding on a wedge.
