Outdoor Axe With Collar Guard
(0) Write a review
The Gransfors Bruks Outdoor Axe With Collar Guard was developed with the help of survival expert Lars Fält, and is ideal for those who want to use an axe in different ways when out and about in the countryside. Although it is light, it can be used to fell a tree, thanks to its relatively long handle and heavy, elongated head. The axe is also excellent for limbing a tree. The handle has a protective steel collar near the head so that the axe can be used for light wood splitting tasks. It can also be used as a large knife.
Lars Fält, who worked with Gränsfors Bruk to design the Gränsfors Outdoor Axe, established the Swedish Armed Forces Survival School and has trained the Swedish Army Ranger Battalion for 35 years at the Ranger School and Parachute Ranger School. He has also written 10 books on survival and outdoor pursuits.
- Length with handle: 37 cm (14.5”)

IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE
Anyone removing a sheath from the Gränsfors Bruk axe must replace it gently by first feeding the heel of the cutting edge into the base of the sheath, (there is that little pocket at the bottom of the sheath), followed by feeding the top portion of the cutting edge into the top of the sheath. This should prevent a sheath from being damaged. A cut sheath is usually damaged by someone trying to simultaneously feed the whole edge into the sheath at once or wiggling it in spite of feeling some resistance.
The axes are VERY sharp and will readily cut a sheath that is not put on with care.
If and when such damage occurs replacement sheaths are available for purchase.
