Gränsfors Bruks has been 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 he is proud of his professional standards. When he is satisfies with his work and has accepted his axe, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label.
The Small Forest Axe is the same size as the Hunters Axe but a more traditional pattern and poll. The blade is thin. The handle is long enough to allow powerful chopping but not too long. It will fit into a portage pack or backpack, the back of a car or a canoe easily. Practical for splitting small sticks for the fire or cutting small-diameter limbwood for starter fuel in a fireplace.
