The splitting hatchet by Gransfors Bruk is the smallest in the line of splitters. It is designed to carry into the woods and use efficiently. The shorter handle allows the user to rotate in a tighter area such as the woods and the weight of the head is still significant enough to split logs with ease. The hickory handle has a protective steel collar near the head and it comes with a grain-leather sheath that protects the sharp edge.
Forged from a special Swedish axe steel, the blades are tempered and annealed to the correct toughness. First quality hickory handles. Axe heads are oiled and protected by a grain-leather sheath. Each axe comes with a book that describes maintenance and use in detail, along with photos of all the craftsman at work.
CAUTION: These are VERY sharp!
