Swedish Carving Axe
Gränsfors Bruks, making the finest axes since 1909! Gransfors 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 satisfied with his work and has accepted his axe, he marks the head with his initials beside the company's crown label.
The Swedish Carving Axe is a chop axe for hewing bowls and other wooden objects, artistic woodcarving and architectural work. The characteristic curved shape of the cutting edge, carried well above the head's eye, the position of the edge in proportion to the handle, the rather thick bit and the big angle of the wide beveled face make this axe a good carving tool. You "cut on the beveled face" with curved movements.
CAUTION: These are VERY sharp!
