Scandinavian Forest Axes by Gränsfors Bruks are forged by professional smiths. 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 Bruk has nothing to hide and he 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.
Scandinavian Forest Axe
A professional axe for those who want to limb a felled tree in the traditional way. Forged to a thin, curved bit and sharpened to make it suitable for cutting branches in fresh resinous wood such as spruce or pine. The long handle gives extra strength and power through the cut.
